Gimcheon Sangmu will try to make it five straight home wins. They will host Seongnam FC, a team full of fond memories, and hope to close the gap on their pursuers.

Gimcheon will host Seongnam FC in the 25th round of the Hana OneQ K League 2 2023 at 7:30 p.m. on June 6 at Gimcheon Sports Complex. Gimcheon hasn’t lost to Seongnam since its inception. They are unbeaten in seven previous meetings with three wins and four draws.

Gimcheon is at the top of the standings with 42 points (13 wins, 3 draws and 6 losses). With only one point separating them from second-place Busan I-Park, they are in desperate need of a win against Seongnam. After suffering a blow at FC Anyang last time out, Gimcheon will be aiming for three points while maintaining their strong form at home.

Before the game, head coach Jeong Jung-yong said, “We’re feeling weak after getting beaten by (Anyang),” and said, “We’re going to do our best to defend our first place today.” 메이저놀이터

The day before, Busan I-Park beat Cheonan City FC to move within one point of Gimcheon. In the midst of a tight race, Chung said, “We need to protect our position while we are here. Since we are at home, I hope we can prepare in earnest and score first, and I think we can easily drag it out.”

Before the match, Kim Jin-gyu, the core of the midfield, went on maternity leave. Coach Jung struggled to find a replacement for Kim, saying, “I can’t even fit 18 or 19 players on the roster right now. There are also injuries, but even if I say this, no one will hear it in K League 2.” “I don’t think we can lose the midfield battle in the first half, so Yoon Seok-ju, who has good defense, will come in. We’re going to play it safe.”

Managing the players’ physical fitness in the sweltering heat is key. Chung said he tries to give his players as much rest as possible. “When they take a break, we try to make it as stress-free as possible because they are soldiers. The most important thing is to keep them motivated by coordinating these aspects well.”
