“I will approach each game with a plan to catch up with Jeju right above me without worrying about the team below me.”메이저사이트
On the 8th, Suwon FC coach Kim Do-gyun announced his plans for the remaining 5 games of the split round after a 2-2 draw away to Daegu in the final match of the 33rd round of the K League 1 regular league.
On this day, Suwon fought well in the Daegu expedition, but did not achieve victory. In the 30th minute of the first half, Daegu’s Ko Jae-hyun took the lead by hitting the net following Kim Jin-hyuk’s cross, but in the extra time of the second half, ace Lee Seung-woo showed off his dazzling ‘one-touch’ attack chemistry with Yoon Bit-garam and Lopez, and set the tone with a strong attack early in the second half. Finally, in the 21st minute of the second half, Lee Seung-woo took over Lopez’s kill pass and scored the comeback goal. However, in the 24th minute of the second half, just 3 minutes after taking a 2-1 lead, Daegu gave up an equalizer to Brazilian midfielder Beltola. It was a 2-2 draw. It was a disappointing game for Suwon, who had 1 draw and 2 losses in 3 games since the win against Daejeon on September 1st, and 3 points without a win. There was great disappointment about the defense not being able to preserve the victory.
At the post-game press conference, coach Kim Do-gyun was especially disappointed with “the scene where the second goal was conceded.” He said, “It wasn’t a ball that would escape from the right side, but there was a lapse in concentration.” “Of course, the opposing player’s shooting was very good. However, it was unfortunate on the bench that we gave up the equalizer after having a difficult time taking the lead,” he said. “Daegu is very good at using the back three and is defensively stable, and it is a team that is difficult to score against such a defense. Their height is also good,” he said. “It was the part I wanted to aim for, and it turned out well.” “It was good that both goals were connected like that. I am satisfied with that aspect. The defenders worked hard to block and played, but it is unfortunate that goals were conceded in small places,” he said, repeatedly expressing his disappointment in the defensive aspect. “Even though we say we work hard to improve throughout the year, it is not easy. Defense is not just about the last defense that is important. We conceded 2 goals today, but the first goal was due to a lack of positioning and concentration, and the second goal was due to the midfielder’s defensive concentration. “We need to have a high level of concentration, not only as a defender, but as a whole,” he reflected. “Our players’ immersion and concentration in the game are good. In particular, in the last few games, regardless of win or loss, the concentration in the game is very good, but we need to recognize the concentration on the decisive defense,” he emphasized.
Although the team’s path to the final B has been confirmed, Coach Kim has made it clear that he intends to continue moving forward by looking upward rather than downward. Suwon FC, ranked 10th, added 1 point on this day and has 31 points, narrowing the gap to 4 points from 9th place Jeju, which lost 0-1 to Daejeon on the same day. Gangwon, ranked 11th, lost 0-1 to Gwangju, with 26 points, and Suwon, ranked 11th, won 1-0 against Pohang, added 3 points to 25 points.
With a gap of 5 to 6 points from the relegation zone, the strategy was to challenge for a higher place. Coach Kim said, “The split league is now starting. Every game will be more difficult than now. Every game is important. We will play each game with a plan to catch up with Jeju without thinking about the team below us catching up.” He pledged, “This is a time when one point in each game is important. We must play a game without losing. I will aim to win at least one point.”
