Gangwon FC, who were on the verge of relegation to the second division, once again exposed their lack of backbone and only added one point.

Gangwon, led by coach Yoon Jeong-hwan, drew 1-1 in the home game against Jeju United in the 35th round (2nd leg of Final B) of ‘Hana One Q K League 1 2023’ held at Gangneung Sports Complex on the 28th.

Gangwon, with 4 wins, 15 draws, and 16 losses (27 points), could only widen the gap by 2 points with Suwon Samsung (25 points), the lowest ranked team (12th place), which had played one less game. They are also in 11th place, 5 points behind 10th place Suwon FC (32 points), which has played one less game. 11th place must play a promotion playoff against the 2nd place team in K League 2. Jeju maintained 9th place with 10 wins, 9 draws, and 16 losses (39 points).

Gangwon is undefeated for 5 consecutive games (3 draws, 2 losses). In particular, in the previous away game against FC Seoul in the 34th round, Ji Dong-won scored the winning goal in the 35th minute of the second half and lost 1-2. This time too, I lacked the ‘power to endure’.

Coach Yoon had foreign strikers Gabriel and Wellington start on the bench. Instead, with Lee Jeong-hyeop at the center, Kim Dae-won and Yoo In-su were placed in the offensive line. Coach Yoon strengthened the attack from the 35th minute of the first half and put the game on the line. Wellington was used in place of Lee Seung-won, a U-22 resource in the midfield, and at the start of the second half, Lee Jeong-hyeop was removed and Gabriel was inserted.

The strategy worked. Five minutes into the second half, the two created a joint product. After Wellington dribbled from the right side, the ball was crossed toward the goal, and Gabriel quickly got his foot into the Jeju goal.

Jeju took a 1-0 lead in the 45th minute of the second half.굿모닝토토 However, in the 5th minute of added time in the second half, they bowed their heads, allowing Jeongwoon to score an equalizer. The Jeju bench, including acting manager Jeong Jo-guk, cheered the dramatic goal.
