State of play at the bottom of J2

Look away fellow Gifu supporters, it doesn’t make nice reading. Here are the results pertinent to the foot of the table from last Saturday:

  • FC Gifu 0-1 Roasso Kumamoto
  • Omiya Ardija 1-0 Tochigi SC
  • Jubilo Iwata 3-3 Kyoto Sanga
  • Tokushima Vortis 1-0 Mito Hollyhock
  • Oita Trinita 0-1 Ehime FC

Those results mean the table now looks like this:

18 28 7 9 12 26 30 -4 30
19 28 8 5 15 32 41 -9 29
20 28 6 9 13 25 37 -12 27
21 28 5 11 12 26 33 -7 26
22 27 6 5 16 26 52 -26 23

An optimist would point to the fact that Gifu have a game in hand, but even if that were to be won, they would still be bottom due the terrible goal difference of -26. Tokushima Vortis have done well to lift themselves out of immediate harms way, but Mito have regressed a little bit in recent weeks.

Next week’s games look like this:

  • Cerezo Osaka v FC Gifu
  • Mito Hollyhock v Kamatamare Sanuki
  • Tochigi SC v Yokohama FC
  • Kyoto Sanga v Oita Trinita
