Gangwon FC suffered an upset loss to Suwon FC and fell back to the bottom of the table.
Kangwon FC, led by head coach Yoon Jeong-hwan, lost 1-2 at home to Suwon FC in the 27th round of the ‘Hana OneQ K League 1 2023’ at Gangneung Sports Complex on the 19th. As a result, Suwon Samsung, who won 1-0 at Jeju United the previous day, remained in 11th place with 22 points, while Gangwon, who failed to add a point, dropped back to the bottom of the table with 20 points.
Kangwon attacked aggressively from the start and threatened Suwon FC’s goal with Gabriel, Wellington, and Kim Dae-won up front. In the 20th minute, Kim Dae-won’s corner kick was headed home by Kang Too-ji for his league debut. Afterward, Suwon continued to push for an additional goal, but Wellington made a few disappointing decisions and ended the first half with a 1-0 lead.
At the start of the second half, the game was back to square one. In the third minute of the second half, Bautersson crossed the ball from the left flank after a misplaced pass by Lee Min-woo, and in the midst of a scramble for the ball, Lee was able to catch the ball with difficulty and rattle the net with a straight shot.
Unsatisfied with the one point, coach Yoon Jung-hwan made four substitutions in the 35th minute. Kang Too-ji, Kim Dae-won, Shin Min-woo, and Wellington were dropped in favor of Lee Ji-sol, Lee Jae-won, Park Sang-hyuk, and Yago. Gangwon went on the offensive in the final minutes of the game, capitalizing on their physical advantage, but no further goals were scored. With five minutes of second-half stoppage time, Yoon Beom-garam completed the comeback with a half-volley from Lee Young-jae’s corner kick.
In the post-match press conference, Yoon said, “I think we were a bit complacent that we conceded a goal due to a missed pass. I told the players that today’s game was a battle of concentration and mental strength, but it was unfortunate that we couldn’t do that.”
Meanwhile, Gangwon will play their 28th round home game against the Pohang Steelers at Gangneung Sports Complex on April 26. 파워볼사이트
