The professional football Pohang Steelers took over Kim Cheon and slammed their victory after three games.
Pohang won 1-0 over Gimcheon by keeping Grant’s goal in the 47th minute of the away match in the 26th round of Hana OneQ K League 1 2022 held at Gimcheon Sports Complex on the 2nd.
Pohang, which previously had unsatisfactory results with 1 win, 1 draw and 1 loss in 3 home matches, raised the mood by winning 3 points in 3 matches.
Pohang remained in third place (with 40 wins, 11 wins, 7 draws and 6 losses).
Kimcheon, who recorded 4 matches without a win (1 draw and 3 losses), is still in 10th place (23 points, 5 wins, 8 draws and 10 losses).
Kim Cheon, who missed two games in a row due to an injury, swept the Pohang camp in the early stages, with Kim Ji-hyeon and Kwon Chang-hoon leading the league in scoring.
However, in the 4th minute of the first half, Kim Han-gil’s cross and Kim Ji-hyeon’s header pass followed by Kwon Chang-hoon’s left-footed nonstop volley shot headed towards Pohang goalkeeper Kang Hyun-moo.
Three minutes later, Kwon Chang-hoon connected Park Sang-hyeok’s exquisite lob pass with a left-footed shot from the front of the goal area, but this time, it was blocked by Kang Hyun-moo’s save.
Pohang, who overcame the crisis thanks to Kang Hyun-moo, gradually increased their possession, but they did not create many scoring opportunities due to the constant interruption in the opponent’s dangerous area.
In the 47th minute of the first half, Kwon Ki-pyo, who was at the nearest post, passed a corner kick from the left to the back header, and the front defender Grant shook the Gimcheon goal net with his head.
It was Grant’s first goal of the season.
Pohang coach Kim Ki-dong didn’t like the content of the game, so at the start of the second half, Grant, Kwon Ki-pyo, and Ko Young-joon were excluded, and Shin Kwang-hoon, Kim Seung-dae, and Sang-hyeop Lee were added.
However, there was no significant change in the flow of the game and no additional goals were scored.
