Ten goals in four matches for Suwon

Having looked at Suwon FC stadium it is now time to focus on what they offer on the park as they sit second in the K League 2 after four matches. It has been an impressive start to the season for the side that lost at home on the opening weekend.  

The North Korean with the goals 

This is a side that loves goals and not just that, but they are also not too bad at keeping them out at the other end. The stats back this as after losing to Daejeon they have won three out of three scoring ten and conceding just the one.

At the top of the field, much of this is credited to the attacking threat of An Byong-Jun as the North Korean as already chipped in with five goals so far.

Byong-Jun as just turned 30-years-old but he could be on course for his best season so far as previous to the 2020 season his best goal tally was ten goals with Roasso Kumamoto in the J League 2 in Japan.

The attacker as scored in four matches in a row this season and offers much to his side, as he is a busy forward that gets in the faces of defenders when attacking. This was seen in Wednesday's win over Gyeongnam as he pressured the keeper after a weak pass back which resulted in an easy tap in for his teammate Ishida.

It is a side though that looks impressive all over the pitch from attack to defence and with Yoo Hyun in goals, they seem to have found a strong keeper from Japan J2 side Tochigi in the transfer window.

Attack from the back 

Despite the positive results Suwon match this week which resulted in a 3-1 win over Gyeongnam was an entertaining encounter that saw both sides create many chances.

In truth their opponents attacked them to the end but as mentioned this is a side that can defend and attack. The man in charge Kim Do-Kyun clearly felt the same as he said after the match “I am happy to play and win against a strong side like Gyeongnam. The players did their best until the end. I think we have won against the strong side by playing the football we want to play."

Below is a more of that interview translated from Sportal Korea;

-10 goals in three straight wins.
Goals today came from mistakes in Gyeongnam's play. I thought while preparing for the match the defence was a weakness, so I attacked it. The defensive line was lowered to half-time, but it was strongly pressured.

An Byong-Jun and Ishida have pace and know they can use this well.

-He said that An Byong-Jun and Ishida communicated well.
The players to look to communicate and seem to fit together.

-An Byong-Jun has already scored 5 goals?
His has great ability and is actively working with the team while he has great shooting and header abilities. If he keeps going he can score in every match.

-Are you getting closer to your best team?
We are at around 70% the defence also have a sense of stability, we can switch from defence to attack, and pressed forward. Fans like to watch offensive football and that's why the team concept was attacked.
