JOSE Ortigoza scored a hat-trick as Ulsan Horang-i moved into fifth place in the K-League following a 5-1 thrashing of Daejeon Citizen today.
The Paraguayan striker struck three times after the break to give the visitors a welcome win that almost seals their place in the end of season play-offs. Kim Shin-wook scored twice for Ulsan in the first half.
"We are not in the play-offs yet but this was a good win," Ulsan boss Kim Ho-gon said.
"We need to keep playing well and doing our best until the end of the season. We have a tough game at Jeonbuk next week and that is a real test for us."
Jeonbuk Motors continued their poor recent form with a goalless draw at home to Gwangju Sangmu and slip to sixth in the table.
"This was an important game for us," said Jeonbuk boss Choi Kang-hee. "Gwangju played well and we had many chances but couldn't take them."
