Ulsan defeated host Suwon FC 3-1 in the 17th round of the Hana One Q K League 2023 at Suwon Sports Complex on Saturday thanks to a late goal from In-Joo Gyu. Ulsan (13W, 2D, 2L, 41 points) maintained its lead at the top of the table with its third win in three games. Suwon (18 points) remained in ninth place.
Ulsan conceded a first-half goal to Yoon Beom-Garam. However, after Adam Martin equalized in the second half, substitutes In-Joo Gyu and Bako scored back-to-back goals to complete the comeback.
After the game, head coach Hong Myung-bo said, “It was a tough game. It was a question of whether we could recover from the last loss. We conceded in the first half. I hoped that the after-effects of the last loss would come out in the first half. We decided to play our game from the second half. In the second half, we ended up scoring and winning. We’re back on track. I’m grateful to them for trying their best until the end.”
Regarding Park Joo-ho, who played his retirement game, Hong said, “I congratulated him. I hope he will prepare well for his second life and do what he wants to do. You did a lot of hard work.”
Although Ulsan won the game, the continuous conceding of goals is a problem. “It can’t be helped,” said Hong Myung-bo. We were unlucky today. We can only score more goals. We need to compensate as much as possible. We’re going into the break after one game. We have to be prepared as a whole.”
