Review: Daejeon Citizen 0-2 FC Anyang



Disappointing Daejeon dealt defeat by a resurgent Anyang in what was a bad afternoon for Lee Youngik's side.

The Purples lost their second game of the campaign as the result of a 2-0 reverse to south Gyeonggi-do outfit FC Anyang.

Poor defending and a lack of concentration in midfield cost Citizen and was there to see for both of Anyang's goals.

Daejeon had opportunities to press higher and pick up second balls in midfield areas but the likes of Kim Daeyeol, who is supposed to be a like-for-like replacement for the energetic Kim Sunmin, and Shin Hakyoung struggled to close down the advancing Anyang midfield and allowed them to play.

Indecisive defending with Citizen failing to clear their lines gave Anyang multiple opportunities to regroup rebuild their attacks with little in the way of pressure from the home side.

Anyang eventually took the lead 10 minutes into the second half when the ball found its way to Kim Minkyun on the edge of the box, the former Ulsan Hyundai midfielder's miss-hit shot rolled into the path of Jung Jaehee who found space between Park Jaewoo at right back and Kim Jinkyu at centre back, neither of whom were able to alert enough to spot the danger, instead pleadingly calling for the offside flag to spare their blushes.

Anyang striker Jung Jaehee calmly slotted the ball into the bottom corner and the visitors were 1-0 up and rather deservedly so.

The second goal, which came 11 minutes after the first, didn't cover Daejeon in glory either with goalkeeper Jeon Soohyun beaten at his near post from an acute angle.

Once again Anyang were allowed time and space to work the ball into advanced positions, this time through Kim Minkyun who got in behind the Daejeon back four and slotted home with power.

Questions would have to be raised as to how the goalkeeper was beaten from such a tight angle but Daejeon were second to every ball and looked sluggish.

It was a doubly disappointing afternoon for Citizen as, moments after conceding the second goal, went down to ten men with Cristian Danalache shown a straight red card.

The Romanian forward was adjudged to have pushed Kim Taeho as he dribbled towards goal, the referee blew for a foul to which Danalache strongly disagreed and protested furiously enough to talk his way into a straight red card.

Things then got rather ugly when the former Gyeongnam hitman refused to leave the field adding further insult to injury for Lee Youngik's Daejeon Citizen.

Daejeon have one just once in their opening five games and find themselves seven points behind early league leaders Gyeongnam.

Up next for Citizen is the visit of Asan Mugunghwa on Saturday afternoon, match preview to follow later this week.
