Cho Chan-ho scored twice, leading the Pohang Steelers’ 4-2 demolition of Daegu FC in a K-League Classic duel between the leader and bottom-dweller at the Pohang Steelyard yesterday.

Song Chang-ho and Lee Ji-nam scored for Daegu, which never led in the match, as Pohang again denied Daegu its first victory. With his fourth and fifth goals of the season, Cho, a 27-year-old forward, pushed aside Ko Mu-yeol (four goals) as the team’s leading scorer. Shin Jin-ho and Bae Chun-suk also netted for the hosts.

Collecting 26 points from 13 games, Pohang is two points shy of 2012 Asian champ Ulsan Hyundai which beat Gyeongnam FC, 4-1, on Saturday.

Defender Jung In-whan struck twice as the Jeonbuk Motors claimed three points from Gangwon FC in an away match yesterday. Lee Dong-gook scored his fifth goal of the season, extending his league record for most career goals to 146.

Lee Chun-soo recorded his first goal in four years as the World Cup star helped Incheon United’s 3-0 thrashing of Busan I’Park on Saturday.

At Busan Asiad Main Stadium, Lee, 31, also set up for Incheon’s third goal by Diogo da Silva Farias in the stoppage time.
