New manager Hwang Sun-hong’s side have had the new manager bounce of a deflated beachball; losing in midweek to Seongnam and again on Saturday to Sangju Sangmu. Seoul took the lead early on against Seongnam but goals from Tiago and Hwang Ui-jo, and an own goal from Seoul ‘keeper Yoo Sang-hoon gave Seongnam a three-one victory, Seoul’s goal scorer Adriano was sent off to add to Hwang’s misery. A last minute goal by Lim Sang-hyub gave Sangju a 2-1 win over Seoul at the weekend, allowing Jeonbuk to stretch their lead at the top to six points after beating Jeonnam by two goals to one in midweek, and following that up with a two-all draw against Suwon FC. A resergent Pohang moved into the top half of the table after a four-nil thrashing of Ulsan and a one-nil win over Gwangju. Ulsan recovered from that heavy defeat by beating Suwon Bluewings in dramatic style. The Bluewings were one-nil up going into injury-time at the end of the game, but two late goals for Ulsan gave them victory. Incheon United copied Ulsan’s trick, beating Jeju United with two last minute goals at the weekend. That result, combined with a one-nil win over Sangju in midweek, means that Incheon, who looked certainties for the drop earlier in the season, move out of the relegation zone and level on points with the Bluewings. Seongnam’s one-nil win over Jeonnam moves them to within a point of Seoul and Ulsan, with Jeonnam now three points adrift of tenth place and, along with Suwon FC, in danger of becoming cut adrift at the bottom if results don’t improve.
