Gangwon FC is unable to get out of the pit of a draw.
Gangwon, led by coach Yoon Jung-hwan, drew 1-1 against Jeju United in the 25th round of the ‘Hana 1 Q K League 1 2023’ held at Jeju World Cup Stadium on the 6th. With this, Gangwon’s streak has increased to 15 games (7 draws and 8 losses).
Gangwon put forward a 4-4-1-1 formation. They had only two central midfielders throughout the season, but on this day, three central midfielders were deployed: Seo Min-woo, Han Kook-young, and Lee Seung-won. It was a change in appearance during the break. The change was effective. Although they were behind in the number of shots (6-14) and share (35.2-64.8), Gangwon created more threatening opportunities.
However, the ability to score goals, which has been pointed out as a chronic problem for Gangwon throughout this season, got in the way again this time. In the 4th minute of the second half, Lee Seung-won’s cross, which received Kim Dae-won’s pass, hit the goalkeeper and flowed backwards, giving Seo Min-woo a chance. It was a situation where there was no defensive interference, but Seo Min-woo’s shot hit the side net. In the 27th minute of the second half, Kim Dae-won had a one-on-one chance with the goalkeeper in the box, but the goalkeeper saved. It was fatal that he could not save both of these chances. It was also unfortunate that Wellington Jr.’s goal was ruled offside in the 9th minute of the second half.
Fortunately, Gangwon scored the first goal in the 38th minute of the second half when Kim Jin-ho, who received a long pass from the back, received a cross from the left inside the box, and Park Sang-hyeok split the goal with a left-footed shot. Until the 3rd minute of extra time in the second half, Gangwon blocked Jeju’s attack well.메이저놀이터
However, Gangwon could not survive the last two minutes. In the 3rd minute of extra time in the second half, Jeju, who was on the offensive, put the ball into the box, and Kim Jin-ho tried to kick the ball away, but kicked the leg of Hayes, who ran from behind, and awarded a penalty kick. Hayes scored the penalty kick himself, and the game eventually ended in a 1-1 draw.
Although Kim Jin-ho’s foul was regrettable, it was regrettable that two defenders lost their eyes to one striker in the aerial contest before that. In the end, another problem for Gangwon, lack of concentration on defense in the lead situation, turned 3 points into 1 point. Gangwon seems to be able to get out of the bottom if it solves the chronic problem of goal-making ability and lack of concentration on defense as soon as possible.
