Preview: K League Challenge Round 14


Gyeongnam FC currently top the K League Challenge but face a tricky away tie to Anyang on Saturday whilst with Busan, fresh from their "capital punishment" over both FC Seoul and Seoul E-Land last week, face a Suwon FC determined to stop the rot and restart their promotion push.

Saturday 27th May 

Anyang FC Vs Gyeongnam FC 19:00

Saturday's only Challenge fixture sees table topping Gyeongnam head to south Gyeonggi Province to take on Kim Jongpil's FC Anyang. Gyeongnam are yet to taste defeat this term and have amassed three wins and three draws from their six away trips in 2017. However, Anyang have just one defeat in their last six outings, and have lost at home just once this season.

Prediction: FC Anyang 0-2 Gyeongnam FC

Sunday 28th May 

Busan IPark Vs Suwon FC 19:00

With Daejeon's trip to Asan postponed until the end of September, Busan hosting Suwon FC is Sunday's only Challenge fixture. Under Cho Jinho, Busan have been rampant and, had it not have been for Gyeongnam's sterling form, would be a dead cert for automatic promotion themselves. This week Cho Jinho's FA Cup giant killing side welcome Suwon FC, a team that have dropped out of the playoff places after a run of just one win in six.

Our columnist Paul Neat previews this one with an exclusive interview with Australian striker Bruce Djité here.

Postponed until Wednesday 27th September

Monday 29th May 

Bucheon 1995 Vs Seongnam FC 19:30


In a Monday night K League Challenge double header Bucheon 1995 face Seongnam FC. Much like Suwon FC, Bucheon have slipped out of the playoff places due to recent results, in Bucheon's case thanks to two defeats on the spin. Seongnam endured a torrid start to the campaign but since their FA Cup victory over Cheongju in mid-April, the Magpies have just one defeat in the eight matches that have passed since. Park Kyunghoon's men are now 7th and are beginning to position themselves for a tilt at the playoff places.

Prediction: Bucheon 1-2 Seongnam FC

Ansan Greeners Vs Seoul E-Land

One place below Seongnam is newly-founded Ansan Greeners who take on second bottom-placed Seoul E-Land. The Greeners' debut season has been inconsistent; two wins from their first three games was then followed by a dismal spell of form that has seen Ansan win just once since their 1-0 win over Anyang in round three. E-Land, two places below Ansan, have just one victory since the last time these two sides faced each other at the end of March, a game which E-Land narrowly won.

Prediction: Ansan Greeners 0-0 Seoul E-Land
