A decent week for some teams at the bottom of J2

Thespa Kusatsu Gunma 0-1 FC Gifu

Huge result for Gifu, as Blazhe’s 67th minute strike gave them the win against their 10 man hosts.

Kataller Toyama 0-0 Giravanz Kitakyushu

A stalemate in Hokuriku as the weather played havoc with attempts to play football. A draw is decent enough for both teams

Roasso Kumamoto 2-1 Tokyo Verdy

Massive win for Roasso, which was spearheaded by the excellent Kazuki Saito. His 82nd minute winner capped a comeback that started with Osaka’s 32nd minute equalizer. Ex-Giravanz forward Satoshi Tokiwa had given Verdy the lead.

Gainare Tottori 1-1 Ehime FC

Dudu’s injury time equalizer, after Ehime ‘keeper Akimoto had flapped at a cross, gave the hosts what could prove to be a crucial point. Defender Takuya Sonoda had given Ehime the lead when he bundled in from a right wing corner.

This is how the foot of J2 looks now.
