A last-gasp equaliser from Lee Dong-Gook secured a 1-1 draw for K-League champions Jeonbuk Motors at home to league leaders Gyeongnam FC today.
After a scramble in the Gyeongnam box in the seventh minute of injury time, a shot came off the crossbar and Lee launched himself amid a group of Gyeongnam defenders to head the ball home from close range. Gyeongnam, looking to go three points clear at the top had looked good for a sixth successive win as they took the lead after 29 minutes.
Kim Dong-chan latched onto a long pass to give himself a one-on-one with the goalkeeper and the striker made no mistake with his finish. The visitors however were pushed further and further back in the second half and were unable to hold out.
Elsewhere, Seongnam Ilhwa Chunma picked up a comfortable 3-0 win at home to Asian Champions League holders Pohang Steelers to move up to third. Mauricio Molina scored a sixth minute opener, controlling a cross from Jeon Kwang-jin and then stabbing the ball past Shin Hwa-yong from close range.
The Colombian turned provider just before the hour, when his floated free-kick was headed home in powerful fashion by Sasa Ognenovski. There was still time before the end for Kim Cheol-ho to add a third.
"The difference was that Seongnam took their chances while we didn't take ours," said Pohang boss Waldermar Lemos after the match. "We are not getting good results but the performances have not been bad but we are just not putting our chances away."
FC Seoul missed a chance to go top after losing 3-0 at Busan I'Park and Daegu FC drew 2-2 at home to Gangwon.
