Gwangju earn 'bogey team' status in Daegu

Gwangju FC won for the third straight game in Daegu pulling themselves off the bottom of Hana 1Q K League 1. Their first points in seven on the road, Kim Ho-young's side came from behind to claim all three points courtesy of goals from Eom Ju-sung and Yeo Bong-hun. 

What Happened?

Gwangju started the game the brightest with Eom Ji-sung intercepting a loose ball and firing a half-volley just wide of Choi Young-eun's goal. With Heo Yool coming close to breaking the deadlock but not connecting enough to trouble the Daegu keeper, Gwangju looked buoyed by last weekend's win over Incheon United. To the home fans relief Daegu did find a way into the game and their best chance came from an unlikely source with giant defender Jeong Tae-wook stinging the palms of Yoon Pyeong-guk from the edge of the box. Introduced to the fans at DGB Daegu Bank Park in ceremonious fashion before the game, summer signing Lamas forced another good save five minutes later.

The second half starting in much the same vein with Daegu making their superiority count on 50 minutes as Kim Jin-hyuk netted his sixth of the season, connecting with Jung Seung-won's cross at the near post. That was as good as it got for Daegu however, as Gwangju won at DGB Daegu Bank Park for the third consecutive time. 19-year-old Eom Ji-sung bagged his first away goal in K League to level the scores before turning provider from a corner for Yeo Bong-hun to stretch and beat Choi Young-eun. 

Season Defining Week for Gwangju


Climbing off the bottom of Hana 1Q K League 1 tonight will give Kim Ho-young, his players and staff an almighty psychological boost heading into two vitally important clashes with Seongnam FC and Gangwon FC next week. On the back of six straight defeats on the road, tonight's come back win was there first since Gangwon in April, where they return in another Friday night game in Round 28. First is a home meeting with the Magpies, who they climbed above in the table to tenth with victory in Daegu.

Yoon Pyeong-gook takes his chance


Yoon Bo-sang has been a fantastic addition to Kim Ho-young's squad and arguably one of the best performing keepers in K League this season. However, his injury allowed for the return of Yoon Pyeong-gook who has now been part of a Gwangju side collecting back to back wins with the 29-year-old in goal. Under the lights and vociferous home crowd that got on his back on occasion, Yoon made three spectacular saves from the likes of Jeong Tae-wook and Lamas who struck fierce volleys in his direction.
