“Liu Hongmin will play well today.”
KB Insurance, coached by Hoo In-jung, will take on Hyundai Capital in the fourth round of the Dodram 2023-24 V-League Men’s Division on Thursday at Uijeongbu Indoor Stadium.
KB Insurance has struggled to climb out of the bottom of the standings, losing five straight games and four consecutive shutout losses. They have 14 points (3W-17L). At this point, 토토 they are likely to finish last for the first time in their history.
Hwang Seung-bin is back in the lineup today. Hwang Seung-bin has been rested for the last two matches due to an eye injury, but Hwang Kyung-min will be missing. Hwang suffered a left knee injury against Samsung Fire on December 30 last year and did not step on the court from the second set after playing the first set.
Before the match, coach Hoo In-jung said, “Seung-bin is starting. Hwang Kyung-min couldn’t come. He has a hamstring injury during training. He is receiving treatment. If it’s a little longer, he might not be able to play the next match. We’ll have to wait and see,” he said.
“Liu Hong-min and Hong Sang-hyuk will start. If things go well, I’ll give them a chance, but if not, I’ll give Kwon Tae-wook or some of the younger players a chance. Liu Hongmin’s defense is good, but his offense is a bit saggy. But once he gets going, he’s explosive. I think he will play well today.”
Hyundai Capital is in good form. They have won three straight games since the firing of coach Choi Tae-woong. With a win against KB Insurance today, they will move up to fifth place.
He said, “Kim Myung-kwan has stable ball distribution. He’s playing comfortably. The attackers take care of the difficult balls, so he seems to be relaxed.”
As for Hong Sang-hyuk, who has been playing as the main outside hitter this season, he said, “He has potential. He can play well. As the season progresses, he will get better and better.”
