Team of the Round
Busan IPark (vs. Seoul E-Land, Sun. 12th June - 18:00)
New Busan IPark boss Park Jin-sub is one in one having had just around 40 minutes with his team in training before guiding them to a win last weekend. Busan picked up a 2-0 home win over Ansan Greeners thanks to goals from Lee Sang-heon and Domagoj Drožđek for what was the team's first win in five matches. It was also the first cleansheet in five matches and just second this season in the league. The task at hand for Busan now is to make it back-to-back wins in the league for the first time since September and October last year, 23 matches ago. Up next for Busan is Seoul E-Land away this Sunday night.
Player of the Round
Hernandes, Gyeongnam FC (vs. Jeonnam Dragons)
In a 6-1 demolition of Gimpo FC last time out, Gyeongnam FC forward Hernandes bagged a hat-trick with goals on seven, 41, and 62 minutes. That took his tally for the season to seven from 14 starts which is just three fewer than his tally for the whole of last season. The 22-year-old also has three assists to his name to make it 10 goal contributions so far this term. Hernandes began his K League career with Gyeongnam's opponents this Saturday, Jeonnam Dragons. While in the yellow of Jeonnam, Hernandes scored three in eight starts and 16 appearances overall. He and Gyeongnam will be looking to build on last week's performance which turned out to be quite the show of Brazilian skill with Tiago Orobó also getting on the scoresheet, as did Willyan with a brace.
Elsewhere in K League 2 Round 20
Elsewhere, there's the Chungcheong Derby as Chungnam Asan take on Daejeon Hana Citizen on Monday. One of the newer derbies in K League, this fixture tends to throw up interesting scorelines and long-range screamers. The added element in this Round 20 fixture is that both teams are looking up with aspirations of winning promotion.
On Sunday, Ansan Greeners take on Bucheon FC 1995 in something of a Gyeonggi Province derby. Bucheon have slipped to third after a run of four matches without a win while Ansan are still stuck on one win for the season. Anything less than three points against Bucheon this weekend could see the Green Wolves cut adrift at the foot of the table.
