Motors avoid slip, Pohang maintain pressure
K-League leaders Jeonbuk Motors twice came from behind to win 3-2 at Busan I'Park today.
The victory kept the 2006 AFC Champions League winners seven points clear of Pohang Steelers at the top of the table.
Han Sung-Yoon put Busan ahead after eight minutes, slotting home a low left-foot shot past Kim Min-Shik but just before the break, Huang Bowan fired home after being set up inside the area by Lee Dong-Gook.
Within seconds of the restart, Busan's Brazilian star Fagner restored the hosts' lead but Lim Yoo-Hwan equalised again nine minutes later. Two minutes later, Jung Song-Hoon, who missed a first-half penalty, redeemed himself by bagging the decisive goal.
Seoul hit six
Pohang stayed in contention with a 1-0 win at home to Gyeongnam FC thanks to a 76th-minute goal from Noh Byung-Joon, while champions FC Seoul made it seven wins from seven with a 6-3 win at home to bottom club Gangwon FC.
A hat-trick from Colombian star Mauricio Molina, a brace from Dejan Damjanovic and a solitary strike from Lee Seung-Ryeol did the damage, while the visitors salvaged some pride with late goals from Yoon Jun-Ha, Seo Dong-Hyun and Kim Jin-Yong.
Suwon Bluewings stayed in fourth after a 1-1 draw at Ulsan Horang-I. Lee Jin-Ho scored in the first half for Ulsan while Oh Jang-Eun earned a point for Suwon with 18 minutes left.
Chunnam Dragons moved above Busan into fifth following a 1-0 win at Sangju Sangmu. Lee Seung-Hee got the only goal of the game after 62 minutes.
Elsewhere, Incheon United ended a ten-game winless streak by beating Daejeon Citizen 2-0. Jung Hyuk scored after seven minutes and Fabio Bahia scored with seven minutes remaining.
A 19th-minute goal from Cho Dong-Keon ensured that Seongnam Ilhwa Chunma's revival continued with a 1-0 win at home to Daegu FC, while Gwangju FC and Jeju United played out a 2-2 draw.
Lee Seung-Ki and Heo Jae-Won gave Gwangju a 2-0 lead but second-half goals from Kwon Yong-Nam and Kim Eun-Jung meant that Jeju took a point back south.
