Gimcheon, which opened its doors, shook Daegu’s net again two minutes later with Park Sang-hyuk’s left-footed shot in the box.

Gimcheon regained No. 1 ranking (39 points) in the league by winning three consecutive games. It is one point ahead of Ulsan HD (38 points), which played one game less.

Daegu failed to overcome unfavorable factors such as consecutive away matches between Ulsan and Gimcheon, and thus suffered a two-game losing streak. However, it has still maintained its 10th place (20 points) in the league.
