Rokutan – 6 Wasn’t called upon a great deal, and didn’t do much wrong. Possibly could have made himself bigger for the first goal.
Tatsunori – 6 Supported in attack and defended well for the most part. The first goal came from someone unmarked on his side.
Wada – 6 Still quite impressive at times. I’d still take Min Je in a stright choice.
Daiki – 7 Coped pretty well with a strong attack.
Kobara – 7 Definitely first choice partner for Daiki, better than Makoto and Yamaguchi on this evidence.
Sueyoshi – 4 Our most important player for today’s game. Really needed him to impose himself, but he looked lost and rarely got anywhere near the ball.
Suzuki – 6 Better than he has been, but probably makes life harder for Sueyoshi with his lack of presence. Need Nakamachi back.
Matsuura – 6 Had that one really good game, and hasn’t matched it since.
Jogo – 6 Should concentrate on being the support striker, but still needs to remember to get into the box.
Yusuke – 6 Puts in effort, and is starting to be helpful in defence, but cannot seem to beat his man any more.
Shigematsu – 6 Full of energy again, but didn’t scare the defence like I hoped he would. Hit a decent long range free-kick, but snatched at the best chance of the game when through on goal.
Ushinohama – 6 I like that he got a game, but didn’t do a great deal.
Naruoka – 6 A few nice touches, and more than in previous games, but still not the player we were hoping for.
Shinoda – 5 Playing against a team he should know quite well he didn’t seem to have learned, or have much of a plan. They were better than last year, but played in a very similar way. We were also better, but didn’t seem to know how we were playing.
