Preview: Daejeon Citizen Vs Gangwon FC

Daejeon Citizen Vs Gangwon FC

Hyundai Oilbank K League Challenge Sunday 14th August 2016 7:00 PM KST

Form

Daejeon Citizen: LWDLWW
Gangwon FC: WWLDWL

Daejeon followed up their impressive win over Gyeongnam with a 2-1 away victory over struggling Chungju Hummel, thanks to goals from Kim Hae-Sik and Kim Dong-Chan on Wednesday and, certainly in the last ten minutes, some resolute defending.

Daejeon cruised into a two goal lead but Kim Shin’s late strike ensured of a nervy ending to the game.

With Anyang picking up a draw against Ansan, and Seoul E-Land’s victory over Bucheon it means that Daejeon remain in 6th place.

However, due to the aforementioned E-Land win over Bucheon, the gap is now just three points; albeit with Bucheon having a game in hand.

Thus, with the end of summer in sight, and indeed the business end of the season, it is imperative for the Purples to put together a sequence of results to really push for those much-coveted playoff spots.

Sunday’s opponents Gangwon have promotion aspirations of their own and are currently riding high in second place.

Accordingly, the visit of Gangwon on Sunday evening will be a much sterner test than Daejeon’s last two outings but, following a much-needed boost in confidence, a Daejeon victory is not entirely impossible.

With both teams looking up it should make for an interesting encounter.

Previous Meetings

Daejeon’s recent record against Gangwon does not make for great reading having failed to beat them on both occasions thus far in 2016.

Two 1-0 defeats, one in Chuncheon in June, and another in May at Purple Arena, mean that the last time Daejeon picked up three points against Gangwon was back in 2014.

On an autumn afternoon at the Hanbat Stadium in Daejeon, Jeong Seok-Min and Adriano with a brace sealed a 3-0 win for the 2014 Challenge champions elect.


There have been 22 meetings between these two sides with Daejeon having the edge in terms of wins; ten compared to Gangwon’s eight, and four draws.
