Ulsan and Jeju are second and third respectively. Suwon lost their derby match with Seoul, but seven points from their other three games puts them in contention for those Champions’ League places. Pohang’s early season form seems to be losing steam, with the Steelers losing three out of their four games this month.
Despite their derby win over Suwon, Seoul’s form has been appalling this month, with two draws and a home defeat to Sangju. Last season’s champions are now stuck down in seventh, well adrift of the leading pack. A win over high-flying Ulsan, and draw against Jeju helped Incheon lift catch up with their rivals at the bottom of the table; they are now level on points with Gwangju.
