 Eddy Bosnar unleashed a number of trademark free-kicks with his final one leading to a goal as Suwon Bluewings kept up the pressure at the top in the K-League on Thursday.

The Australian defender, who is known for his powerful left-foot free-kicks, played a full game as Suwon brushed aside Sangju Sangmu 3-0 to remain just two points behind leaders FC Seoul after a full midweek round in the K-League.

Stevica Ristic had fired Suwon ahead on 19 minutes, before Bosnar produced a trademark free-kick on the stroke of half-time which was arguably off target before the goalscorer diverted it wide.

Bosnar again hushed the crowd when he fired in a wicked free-kick from long range on 73 minutes, with Sangju Sangmu keeper Lee Sang-Gi doing well to tip it over the bar.

However, Suwon added a second in the 90th minute through Ha Tae-Goon before Bosnar's powerful free-kick couldn't be held by Lee, with Ristic pouncing on the rebound for the third.

Elsewhere in the K-League on Thursday, Matt McKay was left out of the Busan I'Park squad after Socceroos duty, as they lost 2-1 at fifth-placed Ulsan Hyundai.

Sasa Ognenovski returned to the Seongnam Ilhwa side despite his midweek duty, although he was an unused substitute in the 1-0 loss to leaders FC Seoul.

Matt Simon finally returned to action for Chunnam Dragons after a long-term groin injury, coming off the bench on 60 minutes in his side's 3-0 home defeat to Daegu FC. Robbie Cornthwaite started and played 82 minutes in the game.

Luke DeVere put in a full shift as Gyeongnam won 1-0 at Gwangju, while Nathan Burns was absent as struggling Incheon United drew 1-1 with Pohang Steelers.

Meanwhile on Wednesday, Adrian Madaschi was out due to suspension as Jeju United lost 3-1 at home to champions Jeonbuk Motors.
