Jeju United defeats Gangwon FC to stay alive early – FA Cup success accelerates

Jeju United, who have escaped their recent slump, will look to make an early push for promotion when they host Gangwon FC in the 35th round of the Hana One Q K League 2023 at Gangneung Sports Complex at 4:30 p.m. on April 28.

Earlier, Jeju won 2-0 at home against Suwon Samseong in the 34th round of the Hana One Q K League 2023 at Jeju World Cup Stadium on April 22. It was the first win under acting head coach Chung Jo-kook and snapped a four-game losing streak and a seven-match winless streak (1D, 6L).

The win also pushed Jeju further away from the relegation zone. The gap between them and 10th-placed Suwon FC (32 points), who are also in danger of relegation, has widened to six points. If they beat Gangwon this weekend, and Suwon loses to FC Seoul, they will have a goal difference of nine points with three games remaining, effectively booking their stay. Naturally, this will make preparations for the FA Cup quarterfinal against Pohang Steelers on January 1 easier.

The mood is good in Jeju ahead of the big game. The win set the tone and they are unbeaten in three meetings with their arch-rivals Gangwon this season. They lead the head-to-head with one win and two draws. In particular, the line of Yuri, Seo Jin-soo, and Hayes, who are powerful weapons, stood out.

Yuri, who leads the team in attacking points (10 goals, 4 assists), opened the scoring with a sensational lobbing shot against Gangwon on June 3 (2-2 draw). He had previously reached double figures against Suwon with a dominant header, so his recent momentum was at its peak.

Hayes was also strong against Gangwon. After scoring the game-winner against Gangwon on June 3, he scored the game-winning goal against Gangwon on August 6 (1-1 draw) from the penalty spot. Seo Jin-soo scored the game-winning goal against Gangwon (1-0 win) on April 9.

The defense, which kept a clean sheet in the last match against Suwon, will be even more solid. Round 34 MVP Kim Gun-woong anchors the center of the back line, while Round 34 Best 11 selections Lim Chae-min and Lee Ki-hyuk are in good form. In addition, the return of Kim Oh-kyu, who has been released from his suspension, has given the defense more weight.

Acting head coach Chung Jo-guk said, “We made a breakthrough with the win against Suwon. However, we are still not in a position to rest on our laurels. We need to come to Gangwon with more faith and trust. “I believe in the players,” he said, “and I will give my all for them. I will give my all for the squad.” 짱구카지노 도메인
