Preview: Pohang vs Suwon City

With a week off for international play can Pohang muster a win vs Suwon City who has beaten them twice this season?

Previous weeks I've mentioned the urgency Pohang must have in order to make top seven in order to make the play-offs but teams that are ahead have not broken away leaving Pohang behind therefore leaving space to close the gap. With this Round 29 match and only 5 matches left Pohang is only two points behind seventh place Gwnagju giving the Steelers a chance to make a final run at the play-off chase

Which team will show up? After losing 3-0 to Jeonbuk it seemed like a different team played for the next five weeks only beating lowly Incheon 3-0 and losing four of those matches. Then following the loss to Jeju and facing the powerhouse Jeonbuk they managed to collect a point in a 0-0 draw. Some may say this season Jeonbuk has many away draws to sub par teams but this game was vs a Jeonbuk who was at full strength not missing any players due to suspensions or injuries. Following this tough battle the Steelers then drew 1-1 vs a Suwon Bluewings team fighting to get out of relegation using the very popular 4-2-3-1 formation. Which finally led to a injury time 1-0 win vs Sangju Sangmu. Faltering to a surging Jeonnam away from the Steelyard last round and conceding a late injury time game winner should not deter Pohang.

Pohang still has a chance to make the play-offs and perhaps capture a AFC qualification. Things to watch in this match should be the line-ups Yang Dong-hyun has been held scoreless since the 2 goals scored vs Incheon and I'm sure he's eager to find the net once again and Veselinovic has been playing very well. I can see this game opening up with many goals scored depending entirely on the line-up.

Predction:......goals, goals, goals....
