Magnificent Modou Barrow blows title race open as Jeonbuk beat Ulsan

New-signing Modou Barrow scored the opener and set up Han Kyo-won for the winner as Jeonbuk secured a vital 2-1 win against Ulsan to close the gap at the top of the 2020 K League table to just two points.

The 27-year-old attacker has plenty of experience in England, representing the likes of Swansea City, Nottingham Forest, Blackburn Rovers, Leeds United and most recently Reading FC before joining the reigning K League champions in July. Barrow has since started 9 league games for Jeonbuk, setting his teammates up 3 times and scoring once himself.

This victory ends Jeonbuk 3 game winless runs and kept the team in second place – only 2 points behind league leaders Ulsan Hyundai.
