Competition:K-League Challenge

Date:Oct 15, 2016
Game Week:Round 41
Kick-off:13:00
Venue:Gangneung Stadium

With summer well and truly over, and with the inevitable swift arrival of a brisk and harrowing autumn sees the tail end of the K League Challenge season.

The hopes and aspirations of what a successful summer period could have brought Daejeon seem to be nothing more than a mere, distant memory now, with Citizen seemingly facing another season in the second tier of Korean football.

A second chance was offered and seemingly refused by Choi Moon-Sik's men, squandered one could say. 

As such, and typical of what autumn brings; the shrivelling of once vibrant, bright green leaves and the wilting of anything that was once full of colour and hope, Daejeon's season has suffered the same fate. It's dead.

Although, at the time of writing, Daejeon aren't mathematically out of the running, the side that was relegated with them last year, Busan IPark, need just one more win to secure 5th spot and thus, whatever happens come Saturday could all be in vain. 

Busan's 58 points compared to Daejeon's 51, Citizen would have to win all three of their remaining games and hope that Busan lose their all remaining three.

Likewise, with Seoul E-land having four matches remaining, the Jamsil-based side would have to lose at least three of those four for Daejeon to have any chance.

Previous Meetings

In terms of games played this campaign the score is Gangwon 2-1 Daejeon, with all three games ending in 1-0.

The most recent of those was in August when Daejeon entertained the Province-wide representing outfit on a humid Sunday evening which saw Hwang In-Beom net the goal that secured the three points for Citizen with just 15 minutes played.

In June, for Daejeon's last trip to Gangwon, the score was reversed when a 35th minute Jung Seung-Yong strike made Citizen's already long trip back home even longer.

Another 1-0 victory for Gangwon a month previous at Purple Arena was thanks to Choi Jin-Ho's 80th minute winner for the visitors.

In total, Daejeon have played Gangwon 23 times and have recorded 11 victories compared to Gangwons eight, with the remaining four stalemates.

Team News

Full back Kim Hae-Sik picked up a knock during the win over Goyang, his substitution is thought to be have been merely as a precaution and thus could be in contention for Saturday.

Club captain Kim Byung-Suk, who found himself on the bench for the visit of Goyang, was also taken off injured in the aforementioned win over Goyang but is expected to be in ready for the trip to Gangwon.

Meanwhile, central defender Woo-Hyun is expected to remain an absentee with the Daejeon number four still recovering from surgery to alleviate body pain.

For Gangwon, Jung Seung-Yong is back in contention after missing the win over Chungju through suspension.
