The K League Challenge moves into round 7 of the 2014 season, even though we’ve only had half a dozen games it’s already proving to be an exciting and interesting season.
Before looking at the previews and predictions for this weeks round 7, here is updated an updated K League Challenge 2014 league table:
After round 6’s matches the league hasn’t changed a lot due to the high number of draws. Daejeon Citizen are still top and now 4 points clear. FC Anyang, Ansan Police and Daegu are all close behind. Gwangju, Goyang Hi and Suwon City make up the mid table. Whilst Chungju Hummel, Gangwon and finally Bucheon 1995 are at the bottom. The table is still pretty tight and a win could jump teams a couple of places at least up.
