The team played with backups to rest the starters and conceded three goals in the first half alone. They struggled for an equalizer, but Incheon couldn’t find the back of the net.
After the game, Gyeongnam head coach Seol Ki-hyun said, “I realized the level of the K League 1. We conceded easily and played a dragging game. However, we did our best in a difficult environment. I think we played a good game.”
A lot of young players were used. “Through the tough game, I understood the condition of the players a little better. Everyone did their best, and some of the players were inexperienced but well prepared. I think we can give them a chance in the league.”
The team is winless in its last five games, including the FA Cup and league. They have drawn two and lost three. “Our lack of results is due to our defense and finishing in attack. “Our strength is scoring goals in the K League 2, but it’s important for us to score more goals to influence results and strengthen our strengths. If we improve in those areas, I think the results will follow.”
