Preview: Daejeon Citizen Vs Yeungnam University


FA Cup action returns to Purple Arena for the first time in 2017 when Daejeon Citizen host Yeungnam University in the Hana Bank FA Cup fourth round on Wednesday nightWith league form faltering the Purples will see the visit of Yeungnam University as welcome distraction and an ideal opportunity to get a win under their belts. Citizen won the competition in 2001 but have only made it past the fifth round a handful of times since then and just twice in the last decade.

Kick-off:19:30
Venue:Daejeon World Cup Stadium

Form is FA Cup only

Path to the 4th round

With just one league win to their name Daejeon's only other competitive victory this term was in the previous round of the FA Cup when the Purples eased past Cheonan City.

Making the trip north to Gyeonggi Province, Manager Lee Youngik made several changes to the starting eleven that evening, including first starts for forwards Han Seunghyup and East Timor-Brazilian Pedro Henrique.

The inclusion of Han Seunghyup in particular proved to be effective as the former Daejeon Korail man netted his first goal in Daejeon colours when the Purples took the lead early in the first perios.

Cheonan pegged Daejeon back moments later to which Daejeon had little in retort but as an insurance policy gaffer Lee Youngik had some of his heavy hitters on the bench ready and waiting, more notably amongst the substitutes were striker Cristian Danalache and midfield starlet Hwang Inbeom.

The pair were introduced in the second half with Danalache netting what turned out to be the winner to see Daejeon, albeit rather unconvincingly, into the fourth round.

Yeungnam University entered the competition in the second round where, following a 1-1 draw, penalties were needed to settle the tie with Yeungnam University displacing Kwandong Catholic University from Gangwon Province.

In the next round the Daegu-based university side then booked their place in the fourth round with a 2-1 win over Hongik University at home.

Team News

Daejeon Citizen will have Cristian Danalache available for selection again with the Romanian hitman having missed the last two league games through suspension.

Suspensions in the K League aren't valid for the FA Cup and so even if Danalache's suspension had been for longer, he would have been available for Wednesday night anyway.

With Citizen in need of a win, Coach Lee may opt to field a strong side to ensure that his side book their place in the fifth round, the round of 16.
