Daegu FC is in a tight mid-table race, and the team is relying heavily on the play of one of its key resources, Go Jae-hyun, to help them secure a top-tier finish in the second half of the season.
Playing in 24 games this season, 토토 split between the forward line and midfield, Go has five goals and one assist, a disappointing number compared to the nine points he recorded through July last season.
Having started every game, including substitute appearances, up until the 24th round, the most on the team alongside Kim Jin-hyuk, Go has struggled with physical fatigue from switching positions and missing the Asian Games squad, and was cautioned in the last match, ruling him out of the next game due to accumulated cautions.
Facing league leaders Ulsan Hyundai and playing without Ko for the first time this season, Daegu had the task of figuring out a new lineup for their attack and midfield.
Daegu is in desperate need of Go Jae-hyun’s offensive prowess, as he has been the team’s main source of offense, and his performance will be key to their rebound from last year.
Currently sitting in seventh place, Daegu will need to finish sixth or better in their next nine games before the split round to join the top division, Final A, for the first time in two years.
