# 10-man Suwon defeats Suwon FC to stay within a point of 11th-ranked Gangwon Suwon Samsung [Kim Joo-chan ](https://www.patreon.com/posts/boxings-bang-mi-89863718) Last-place Suwon Samsung overcame a sending-off disadvantage to win the "Suwon Derby" against Suwon FC and move back to within one point of 11th-place Gangwon FC. Suwon won 3-2 away from home in the 36th round of the Hana OneQ K League 2023 at Suwon Sports Complex on Wednesday. After two games without a win (one draw), Suwon improved to 7W8D21L (29 points), closing the gap on 11th-place Gangwon (30 points) to one point from the previous day. Tenth-place Suwon FC (32 points) is now eight points behind ninth-place Jeju United (40 points), eliminating the possibility of staying up without a relegation playoff. In K League 1, the last-place team is relegated directly, while the 10th and 11th places are decided via a relegation playoff. It was the more urgent Suwon who set the tone early on. In the third minute of the first half, Weric Pope came close to scoring when he was one-on-one with the keeper. However, the tide turned in the 14th minute. Suwon's Kazuki Kim hit Do-yoon Kim and was shown a red card after video assistant referee ([VAR](https://maps.google.com.ec/url?sa=i&url=https%3A%2F%2F19guide03.com%2F)) review. Ulsan In-Jong-kyu The loss of Kazuki, the centerpiece of the midfield, was a huge blow to Suwon's momentum. With the numerical advantage, Suwon FC pushed forward with a header by Lopez in the 22nd minute and a shot by Lee Seung-woo in the 25th minute. They also took the lead in the process. In the 30th minute, Ugo Gomez headed in a corner kick from Yoon Beetgaram to open the Suwon goal. Gomez's first goal of the season. After that, Suwon settled down and Suwon FC continued to attack one-sidedly. Lopez in the 35th minute and Kim Hyun-i in the 38th minute had chances that were as good as goals, but the lack of finishing prevented them from adding to their lead. Suwon, who had conceded 15 shots in the first half alone, rallied in first-half stoppage time. In the midst of a corner kick scramble, Acosti scored the equalizer. With momentum on their side, Suwon showed their fighting spirit in the second half and added one more goal. Eight minutes into the second half, Ahn Byung-joon scored with a low, mid-range shot from outside the penalty box. This was the moment when Suwon, one man short, turned the game around. Jeonbuk Hyundai and Incheon United draw 1-1 However, Suwon FC equalized just seven minutes later with a header from Kim Hyun. After 2-2, the teams traded chances. Suwon FC missed a golden opportunity in the 25th minute when Bautersson shot wide from a one-on-one opportunity. In the 29th minute, Kim Joo-chan's shot was deflected by a Suwon teammate. It was Suwon, down to 10 men, who had the better of the play. In the 33rd minute, Kim Joo-chan scored the team's third goal with a slight change of direction from a ball dropped by [Mulicic](http://psicolinguistica.letras.ufmg.br/wiki/index.php/Usu%C3%A1rio_Discuss%C3%A3o:19guide033). After that, Suwon FC tried to fight back with a combination of Lopez's flanking run and Kim's header, but they were blocked by Suwon's counterattack. In the end, Suwon, who fought with 10 men, earned three valuable points away from home. Keeping the spark alive, Suwon will play a "super match" against FC Seoul away on Nov. 25 at 4:30 p.m., followed by a final match at home against Gangwon FC on Dec. 2 at 2 p.m. In Ulsan, Ulsan Hyundai, who have already clinched the title, defeated the Pohang Steelers 3-2 thanks to a relay goal from Seol Young-woo, Ataru, and Lee In-jong-gyu.
