Champions FC Seoul came back from two goals down to draw 2-2 away to nine-man K-League leaders Jeonbuk Motors today.

The point moved Jeonbuk five clear of Pohang Steelers at the top of the table. At a wet Jeonju World Cup Stadium, the hosts were two goals to the good by the break.

On the half-hour Seoul's Brazilian defender Adilson was adjudged to have brought down compatriot Eninho in the area. The playmaker converted from the spot with a low shot but was promptly shown a second yellow card for his celebration.

Just before half-time, the ten men extended their lead as Lee Sung-Hyun's long-range effort took a deflection to give Kim Yong-Dae no chance.

With 12 minutes remaining, Jeonbuk were reduced to nine men after substitute Krunoslav Lovrek also received a second yellow.

Just two minutes later, Seoul pulled a goal back as Kim Min-Sik headed home a Server Djeparov corner and, almost immediately, Dejan Damjanovic finished off a fine passing move to bring Seoul level.

In the day's other fixture, Ulsan Horangi and Gyeongnam FC played out a goalless draw.
