THE TEAM NEWS

SUWON BLUEWINGS

  • Suwon Bluewings suffered a narrow defeat in their opening match of the new season as they conceded a late goal against defending champions Jeonbuk Motors with a red card with 15 minutes remaining proving to be decisive.
  • Suwon were under pressure throughout the contest but their defence were holding firm and frustrating their opponents until they conceded with just six minutes remaining and they were unable to get back on level terms.
  • Terry Antonis was given a straight red card for a poor challenge which played its part in his side succumbing to the late goal and he will now be missing for this game as the Bluewings attempt to respond to that defeat.

ULSAN

  • Ulsan got their season off to a superb start as they put four goals past Sangju Sangmu last week and showed that they would not allow last year’s final day disappointment to affect them during this campaign.
  • Junior Negao put Ulsan ahead inside the opening 10 minutes before Junior Negao doubled the lead on the stroke of half-time as he converted from the spot which proved to be a killer blow.
  • Lee Sang-heon added a third just six minutes into the second half before Yoon Bit-garam completed the scoring and although Ulsan would have been eager to retain the same starting XI as last week, goalscorer Sang-heon is a doubt after he left the field with a knock last week.

THE PREDICTION

Suwon Bluewings put in a backs to the wall performance last week and they were very nearly rewarded with a point on the road at last year’s champions Jeonbuk Motors but they could not hold on. Playing the final 15 minutes with 10 men proved too much to handle which meant their efforts proved in vain and they now face a tough task as they host Ulsan. The visitors started with a big win last week and although the hosts will try to keep things tight at the back, Ulsan should be able to make it back-to-back wins.
