“We were outnumbered and we kept a clean sheet. I don’t think we should be disappointed, but I think the players are very good and it will help our team move in a better direction.”

Pohang Steelers played to a 0-0 draw at home against Incheon United in the ninth round of the Hana Bank K League 1 2024 at Pohang Steel Yard on Nov. 28.

Pohang were outnumbered when Oberdan was sent off late on for an accumulation of cautions, but managed to hold on for a valuable point. With 18 points, 홀덤사이트 Pohang moved within one point of leaders Gimcheon Commerce (19 points).

After the match, Pohang head coach Park Tae-ha said, “Incheon’s defense was solid as expected. Our players didn’t look good in the beginning. It wasn’t smooth. That can happen in a match. However, we showed the ability to cope even though we were missing one player in the second half. We didn’t win at home, but we can take solace in the fact that we responded to what could have happened. We kept a clean sheet with 10 men. I want to praise the players for their hard work and the fans for their support, and we will repay them with a win next time.”

U-22 volunteer defender Lee Kyu-baek, who joined Pohang as a semi-professional in 2022, made his league debut. He was subbed out in the 10th minute of the second half. “In the first half, we didn’t have much to defend, so it was hard to evaluate,” Park said. In the second half, Mugosa and Gerso came on and we made substitutions to deal with it. I think (Lee Kyu-baek) is a good enough replacement for Park Chan-yong even if he comes back to the team,” Park said.

Giorgi didn’t find the back of the net again today. He didn’t capitalize on his chances. “I’ve said it before, but I’m ready to break out. It’s true that he needs to break out, but the other players are doing a good job. He gives the team energy. He’s not just defending, he’s shaking up the defense. It would be great if he could score, but I’m positive about the role he’s playing. We’ll wait and see.”

Nevertheless, they remained unbeaten. “We were outnumbered and kept a clean sheet,” Park said. I don’t think the players are disappointed, but I think it will help us move in a better direction,” Park said.
