Jeju United retained their hold on top spot in the K-League with a dramatic 3-2 win at Incheon United.

With eight minutes remaining, the visitors were 2-1 down and staring defeat in the face. Kim Eun-jung had given Jeju a first-half lead but goals from Yoo Byung-soo and new signing Samir Bekric put Incheon in the driving seat.

With time running out, Brazilian striker Santos levelled the scores before deep into injury time, Kim scored his second to give the islanders a last-gasp victory. "This was a really tough game," said Jeju coach Park Kyung-hoon. "Any win away from home is satisfying. This win proves that we are a good team."

Park insisted his team did not feel the pressure of leading the table with half the season gone. "We have lots of good players and the back-up players are sharp. As we play more games, we are going to get better," he added.

Any win away from home is satisfying. This win proves that we are a good team.

Seongnam Ilhwa Chunma remain a point behind in second after a 1-0 win at Daejeon Citizen thanks to a goal from Cho Jae-cheol midway through the second half. FC Seoul stay third by virtue of goal difference despite a 2-0 win at Gwangju Samgmu. Both goals came in the second half, the first just before the hour from Ha Dae-sung and the second from Jung Jo-gook with 13 minutes remaining.

Defending K-League champions Jeonbuk Motors came back from two goals down to win 3-2 at Gangwon FC and climb to fourth. Kim Yong-hu and Lee Chang-hoon put the hosts in the driving seat and with 15 minutes remaining, the situation looked grim for the Asian Champions League quarter-finalists.

But Croatian star Krunoslav Lovrek pulled a goal back and Brazilian playmaker Eninho equalised with seven minutes to go before Lovrek grabbed the winner two minutes into injury time.
