Daejeon Citizen missed the chance to go fourth in the K-League today after losing 2-1 at Gwangju.

Lee Seung-Ki put Gwangju ahead after eight minutes and the hosts doubled their advantage through Joao Paulo shortly after the half-hour mark.

Daejeon pulled one back on the stroke of half-time thanks to a Kim Chang-Hoon goal but the visitors could not find an equaliser. The win moved Gwangju up to 11th.
