Pohang Steelers Preview – Fast-starting Steelers striving to turn in 90-minute performance

Pohang have scored in the first half of all four of their matches so far this season but only managed went on to secure maximum points in half of those games.
Their two wins to date came against teams struggling in the bottom three of the table and they only managed a draw against Daegu, who have yet to win a game in the current campaign. They lost against mid-table FC Seoul at the Steelyard which suggests they might struggle to see off so-far unbeaten Ulsan.
Manager Kim Gi-dong will have to rejig his defence for the first East Coast derby of the season as first-choice full backs Lee Sang-min and Kim Yong-hwan have been called up to do their national service.
But his attack has as settled look about it with Lee Gwang-Hyeok and Colombian winger Palacios providing the ammunition for Stanislav Iljutcenko. The Germans striker has already scored three times this season, one more than Serbian Aleksander Paločević.

Ulsan Hyundai Preview – Ulsan seeking revenge for last season’s dramatic finale

Defeat by Pohang on the final day of last year’s campaign denied Ulsan a first title in 14 years.
They have looked determined to make amends this season having started with two wins and two draw and sit just a point of early pace-setters Jeonbuk Motors.
That bodes well for the rest of the season as Kim Do-hoon has been rotating his squad, resting star man Lee Chung-yong against Gwangju and leaving Jason Davidson and Shin Jin-ho on the sidelines for the visit of Busan.
There will be no tinkering for the short trip to the Steelyard, however, and Ulsan could be boosted by the return of summer signing Bjorn Johnsen in attack. The 28-year-old Dane is key to their forward play, though teenager Park Jeong-in has done well in his absence.
