Pohang draw to top K-League
Pohang Steelers moved to the top of the K-League today despite being held to a 2-2 draw by Incheon United. Their stay at the summit may be a short one as a number of teams can leap above the three-time champions with a win on tomorrow.
Hwang Jin-Sung put Pohang ahead after just four minutes but Timur Kapadze equalised for the visitors 30 minutes later. Hwang restored the hosts' lead just after the break but Yoo Byung-Soo struck seven minutes from time to ensure a share of the spoils.
"It is not the end of the season but just the beginning," said Pohang coach Hwang Sun-Hong. "Still, I am sorry that we were not able to show our best in front of a big crowd today. We will do our best to improve."
Incheon are still looking for their first win of the season but coach Huh Jung-Moo was grateful of the point. "We let a goal in almost as soon as the game started," said Korea's 2010 FIFA World Cup™ coach. "But despite that we kept our shape and kept going. "
Daegu FC moved into third place with a 2-1 win over Gyeongnam FC.
Song Chang-ho fired home an injury-time winner from the spot to give Daegu a second successive win. Kim Hyun-Sung put Daegu ahead after 27 minutes but the visitors looked to have managed a point with a goal from Yoon Bitgaram six minutes from time.
Elsewhere, Sangju Sangmu were held to a goalless draw at Gwangju FC.
