Seol opens K-League account in draw
Seol Ki-Hyeon scored his first ever goal in the K-League as Pohang Steelers drew 1-1 at home to fellow Asian Champions League quarter-finalists Suwon Bluewings.
Seol, who signed for the continental champions early in the year but has been sidelined through injury, ran on to a through ball from Hwang Jin-Sung to shoot low under Lee Woon-Jae's body and give Pohang the lead just five minutes into the battle of the struggling giants at The Steelyard.
Suwon equalised with a similarly worked goal. Yeom Ki-Hun's smart pass dissected the Pohang backline for Lee Hyun-Jin to fire a shot first time into the bottom corner. Seol had a chance to give Pohang a first win in 10 games late in the match but saw his volley from close range come back off the crossbar.
"It is great to score my first goal,'' Seol said. "Still, if I had scored my chance (at the end) then we would have got three points. I believe that this is the real start of my career at the club and as I play more games, I will improve and my physical condition will improve too.''
Gyeongnam FC missed the chance to go fourth as they were held to a 1-1 draw at bottom club Daegu FC. Kim Dong-Seok put the hosts ahead eight minutes after the restart but Lee Yong-Rae earned Gyeongnam a point 10 minutes from time.
Finally, Busan I'Park came from two goals down to draw 2-2 at Chunnam Dragons.
