Anyang 0 - 1 Ansan
Ansan Dig Deep to Snatch 3 Points in Anyang

Mike Brandon @ Anyang Sports Complex 24th May 2015

Ansan reignite their season with a unpretty but valiant effort away to Anyang.

Beginning the day 4 points off the promotion play-off places, Ansan travelled to Anyang in desperate need of the points that would keep them in touch witht he top four. Anyang, without a win in their last seven games were similarly in desperate need of the points. Of note: the two sides had become something of the leagues draw merchants, both with six draws in the opening nine games.

The game proved a scrappy affair, with some cyncical challenges from both sides. Ansan found themselves a goal up after twenty-two minutes when Park Heedo knocked the ball into the net. There was some confusion in the build-up, with the referee seemingly allowing play to go on despite a foul on an Ansan player in the build-up. A scrappy goal, but a perfection reflection of how Ansan were going to have to win the game.

Anyang ramped up the pressure, and dominated throughout the rest of the first and second half, but a lack of adventure, faced with an industrious defensive display from Ansan condemened Anyang to yet another defeat. It was also notable for Ansan being able to close out a game, having lost ten points from winning positions in the final stages of games this season.

MOTM 27. Han Deokhee
Some crunching challenges and industrious cover from Han kept Anyang from truly threatening the Ansan goal.
