Thiller sees Jeonbuk top, Pohang win
Leonardo's injury-time strike lifted Jeonbuk Motors to the summit of the K-League after a thrilling 3-3 draw against Jeju United.
The reigning champions looked set to pass up the opportunity to move to the top of the standings following FC Seoul's loss yesterday, as they trailed 3-2 with just seconds remaining. But Leonardo popped up to snatch a point for the hosts that takes them ahead of Seoul on goal difference with just two matches remaining in the regular season.
Jeonbuk had earlier been on course for all three points after goals by Seo Sangmin (33) and Eninho (42) cancelled out Jair's fourth-minute opener, but Kang Soo-il's late brace (86, 90) put Jeju in charge until Leonardo's dramatic late intervention.
Pohang Steelers climbed to sixth place after a 4-2 win over Daegu FC. Goals by Kim Wonil (16), Hwang Jisu (31), Park Sungho (48) and Noh Byung-joon (64) secured the points for the home side, while Daegu replied through Song Jeheon (41) and Kim Yousung (90).
Javier Reina (65, 71) bagged a brace and Everton (20) was also on target as Seongnam Ilhwa Chunma won 3-0 at Sangju Sangmu, while Kim Youngwook's goal in the 84th minute lifted Chunnam Dragons to a 1-0 win away to Gyeongnam.
