K-League wrap: Suwon go top, Pohang held

Created on Apr. 06, 2013 12:30 PM EST

Suwon Bluewings moved top of the K-League after a comfortable 3-1 triumph over Daegu on Saturday.

After missing three penalties and being thrashed 6-2 at home by Kashiwa Reysol in the AFC Champions League midweek, Suwon returned to form, with the Pohang Steelers' draw seeing the Bluewings go top.

North Korean striker Jong Tae-Se, who missed two of the penalties during the week, opened the scoring after 32 minutes for Suwon before Derek Asamoah equalised only 11 minutes later.

But Suwon took control of the game after the break as Jung-Jin Seo and Stevica Ristic scored in a 10-minute period following the interval.

The Steelers will be disappointed to relinquish top spot after sharing the points with Incheon United in a 1-1 draw.

Son Dae-Ho put Incheon ahead in the 74th minute before Hwang Jin-Sung forced the leveller three minutes later.

Ulsan came from two goals down to force a 2-2 draw against Seoul – a result that moves them up to third.

Mauricio Molina and Dejan Damjanovic gave Seoul a comfortable buffer in the first-half but Ulsan's Kim Seung-Yong was able to pull a goal back seven minutes before half-time.

Han Sang-Woon got the equaliser for Ulsan in the 72nd minute as Seoul were left wondering what might have been.

An 86th-minute winner from Seo Sang-Min handed Jeonbuk Motors a 2-1 win at home against Jeju United.

The result moves Jeonbuk up to fourth position in the standings while Jeju remain sixth.
