Ulsan coach Ho-kon confident of first ACL win

After two defeats in the opening two matches, Ulsan Hyundai are ready to win according to coach Kim Ho-kon.

The Korean club have dropped both matches so far, to Nagoya Grampus and Newcastle Jets, and desperately need a win against Beijing Guoan tonight at home.

"We know what is at stake in this game and I have full confidence in my team and their ability to win this match," Ho-kon said.

"It isn't a matter of resting my players or just focusing on the domestic league more than the Asian Champions League, my squad selection has been based on which players are in peak physical condition.

"Due to our injuries, I have not been able to choose my ideal line-up," he added.

"But I am hoping that Oh (Jang-eun) can play in the second half against Beijing but Yeom (Ki-hoon) will not be back until June and that is a problem for us."
