It brought back memories two years ago. Gangwon will play the promotion and promotion playoffs again after two seasons. It finished the regular season in 11th place in the last 2021 season, and it played the promotion and promotion playoffs against Daejeon Hana Citizen. At that time, it lost 0-1 in the first leg away, but won 4-1 at home in the second leg to stay. Last season, it turned the tables by advancing to the Final A. Under Choi Yong-soo’s leadership, Kim Dae-won and Yang Hyun-joon finished the season in sixth place.
However, Gangwon`s team fell again this season. Kim Dae-won was sluggish and Yang Hyun-jun left the team, leaving a gap. Fortunately, the team ended the season in 10th place with a 2-0 win in the guillotine match against Suwon FC in the 37th round and a 0-0 draw in the final league match against Suwon Samsung.
The team will face Kimpo in the playoff. The first round was tied 0-0 at Kimpo’s home ground. Gangwon struggled with Kimpo’s two-line defense and failed to create any significant opportunities. “Gimpo Stadium was too tight to play. As it was not an official standard, I thought it would be difficult against a team that is under high pressure,” coach Yoon Jung-hwan said. “Our players have experience. As we have continued to come here with the goal of staying, we desperately wanted to finish the last game well.”
