By squeezing past last-place Suwon Samsung Bluewings on Sunday, Ulsan Hyundai FC extended their win streak to six matches, and their lead at the top of the K League 1 tables to 13 points.
Martin Adam's 85th-minute goal ended up being the difference in Ulsan's 3-2 win at Suwon World Cup Stadium in Suwon, 30 kilometers south of Seoul.
Ulsan had recorded only two draws and three losses in their five previous visits to Suwon World Cup Stadium.
Ulsan, going for their second straight K League 1 title, improved to 37 points and now lead FC Seoul by 13 points. FC Seoul are tied in points with two other clubs -- Jeju United and Pohang Steelers -- and all three of them settled for draws in their weekend action to fall further back of Ulsan.
In winning the 2022 title, Ulsan didn't enjoy a double-digit lead until mid-June and ended up taking the championship by three points over Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors.
Suwon, meanwhile, were trying to win consecutive matches for the first time this season. They remained stuck in last place with eight points.
Elsewhere in the league, Jeonbuk are showing some signs of life after a dismal start to the season that cost head coach Kim Sang-sik his job. In four matches under caretaker manager Kim Do-heon, Jeonbuk are undefeated with two wins and two draws, following a 3-1 victory over Suwon FC on Sunday.
Jeonbuk jumped two spots to take seventh place with 18 points. Once in the relegation zone, Jeonbuk now find themselves just three points out of fifth place, currently occupied by Daejeon Hana Citizen.
In Sunday's match, Jeonbuk welcomed back key attackers Cho Gue-sung and Song Min-kyu from injuries. Song marked his return with a goal eight minutes into the second half.
Gangwon FC held Pohang to a goalless draw despite not registering a shot on target. Pohang attempted 11 shots, including four on goal, but came up empty-handed.
Gangwon snapped their three-match losing streak but remained winless in their past four. (Yonhap)
