# Conflict with NC... SSG coach Kim Won-hyung: “We will continue the atmosphere at the end of the regular season” # From the 22nd, SSG-NC, semi-playoffs with 3 wins out of 5 Among the three teams competing for third place in the regular season, the Doosan Bears were the first to exit the fall stage. **[스포츠토토](https://www.totosafeguide.com)** SSG Landers, the 'winner of the battle for third place', and NC Dinos, who defeated Doosan in the wild card match, will face off for a ticket to the playoffs (PO). After the 2023 KBO postseason wild card match between NC and Doosan, SSG coach Kim Won-hyung said, "I thought both NC and Doosan were good teams, so I trained by focusing on our team's situation and power rather than being conscious of the opponent." “The bullpen pitchers focused on recovery, and the starting pitchers, who needed to maintain their sense of the game, improved their condition through live pitching. The fielders trained with a focus on team play,” he said. It was a comment that revealed director Kim Won-hyung's personality as a 'gentleman' who does not provoke others. However, they did not hide the confidence they gained from winning the competition for third place in the regular season. [Coach Kim Won-hyung](https://blog.libero.it/wp/casinositewiki/2023/12/07/v-league-coach-with-most-wins-2-shin-young-cheol/) posted his entry, saying, "At the end of the regular season, we went straight to semi-PO with good atmosphere, concentration, and a united power to win. I will prepare well to continue showing that in this series as well." SSG, which had fallen to 6th place on September 22nd, showed surprising strength by winning 10 wins and 2 losses in October, pushing out NC and Doosan and rising to 3rd place. Thanks to going straight to [Jun-PO](https://totosafeguide.notion.site/NC-Park-Geon-woo-Park-Se-hyuk-and-Lee-Yong-chan-dd37a0203e3c4afbb769c7e3d244aac8), I got a sweet break. However, now SSG prepares for ‘battle’ again. SSG, which won the overall championship last season, failed to achieve its second consecutive victory in the regular season, but was encouraged by the opportunity to challenge for its second consecutive victory in the [Korean Series](https://app.simplenote.com/p/5RQwJh). The fact that the one-two punch Kim Gwang-hyun and Roenis Elias. Coach Kim Won-hyung used as a turning point to 'fight for third place in the regular season', can be used normally in the semi-PO is also an advantage gained by 'directly going to the semi-PO'. In this year's regular season, SSG and NC fought tightly with 8 wins and 8 losses. Director Kim Won-hyung is preparing for the semi-PO without being overly confident or overly nervous. The semi-PO between [SSG Landers](https://casinositewiki.gitbook.io/neymar-finally-on-the-operating-table/) and NC, a best-of-five match, starts on the 22nd.
