Jeju’s 안전놀이터 start this season was not good. Key players such as Choi Young-jun, Lee Chang-min, and Lim Chae-min left due to injuries, which led to 2 draws and 3 losses in the first 5 games. However, they succeeded in rebounding by winning consecutive victories against Gangwon and Suwon, and are on a tremendous rise, recording 7 wins and 1 loss in the last 8 games including the FA Cup. It was regrettable that there was no home win, but it was resolved by recording two home wins in a row against Pohang and Incheon.
At the press conference after the game against Incheon, coach Nam Ki-il said, “I came out with a tactical change, but I liked the way the players tried to do it first. Communication is going well. Trying to help each other on the pitch is showing good results.” revealed He also commented on Hayes’ performance in scoring the extra goal. He said, “I kept creating chances in the first half, but they regretted not scoring. I thought the player would regret it if I was substituted, so I gave him more time and proved his ability with a goal.” Hays is the top scorer for Jeju’s team with 4 goals.
Suwon is showing a bit of a slowdown with a record of 1 win, 2 draws and 2 losses in the last 5 matches. But the performance isn’t bad.

However, manager Kim Do-gyun evaluated the team’s concentration as disappointing. He expressed regret about his ability to score goals, saying, “I had many scoring opportunities, but unfortunately I couldn’t score. Seung-Woo Lee also tried shooting several times, but it seems that his decision-making ability failed.”
Their record in the last 10 matches is tight with 3 wins, 4 draws and 3 losses. Looking at the overall record, Jeju has a slight advantage with 5 wins, 5 draws and 4 losses. A tight match is expected in this match.
