Jason Davidson made his debut for Ulsan Hyundai overnight in a 2-0 victory over Gangwon, ending a long wait for the Australian to get his first start in Korea.
Davidson joined Ulsan Hyundai from title-winning Perth Glory in June of this year and made his first start last night at right-back in the K-League.
The 28 year-old finished last season as the A-League's best performing left-back and reinvigorated his career under Tony Popovic, winning the Premier's Plate and playing in the 2019 Grand Final.
The former Glory full-back joined halfway through the Korean season and required a substantial amount of rest to battle fatigue following the A-League season.
Ulsan are charging towards the K-League title and are three points ahead of Jeonbuk Hyundai in second place with six matches to play.
Davidson kicks into gear for a spot in the Socceroos World Cup Qualifiers and finds himself battling Aziz Behich, Alex Gersbach and Brad Smith for a spot.
Behich has recently been dropped by his Turkish club Basaksehir, while Alex Gersbach is playing intermittently in Denmark. Smith is the most consistent performer out of the four in the MLS with Seattle Sounders, playing 24 matches.
