Suwon FC conceded a second-half header to Incheon United Obansuk in the 28th round of the Hana One Q K League 2023 at Suwon Sports Complex on Friday afternoon, losing 1-2.
“We struggled with the opponent’s tight defense in the first half,” said Suwon FC head coach Kim Do-gyun. “In the second half, we created a lot of attacks and chances that we wanted, but in the end, it was disappointing that we couldn’t score.”
Regarding Incheon’s second-half push, he said, “The players did their best until the end. I want to praise them for playing hard,” he added.
“Over the course of the season, there are a lot of variables, such as team spirit and injuries,” he said, referring to Lopez’s ejection in the 42nd minute after he lost control of his temper over the opponent’s rough defense and hit Incheon’s Kim Jun-yup in the face with his hand.
“I don’t know what he was thinking and judging at the time, but it was very unfortunate,” Kim said. “The second half went in our favor with a lot of offense for about 10 to 15 minutes, but we were outnumbered due to the ejection.”
“I’m going to tell Lopez to be careful in the future because it’s already happened.”
As for Lee Seung-woo, who has scored goals in two consecutive games, Kim encouraged him, saying, “He’s doing a good job as an offensive leader,” and “I believe he’ll do a good job in the remaining games.”
Coach Kim Do-gyun is struggling to find the best combination of Lee Young-jae, Lee Seung-woo, and Yoon Beetgaram, who has been discharged from the military.
“We have to make changes depending on the situation in the middle of the game, such as the part that connects to the goal,” Kim said, “and we will continue to train to find the right combination.”
After 28 rounds, there are still 10 games left in the league.
“We have to do our best until the end, but realistically, we have to think about the relegation playoffs (PO),” Kim said. “We will definitely avoid direct relegation spots like Gangwon FC and Suwon Samsung. We will look up rather than down and gain strength,” he said.
“There were a lot of positives,” said Kim, who praised Kim Hyun, who, despite spraining his ankle in a sinkhole in the ground, hit the crossbar with a volley in the second half to chill the opponent’s spirits. “I hope he can play a role in future matches.”
As for Shinsegae, who was hit in the face by Incheon’s Chun Sung-hoon’s elbow during an aerial ball contest and bled quite a bit, Kim said, “I think the area under his right eye was torn a bit,” adding, “The exact result will come out after a hospital examination.”
