A horrible result when a win would have taken us into the play-offs, but far from the worst performance of the season.
If you took Punosevac, Ishizu, Sakata and Kanamori out of the attack of any team in the division they would probably struggle for goals and so it proved with our forward line.
Jogo is looking less and less of a striker as he gets older (but needs to realise it himself), Sakai is looking more and more of a striker as the season goes on (but is still learning the role), Hirai doesn’t seem to have got out of his loss of form after scoring last weekend, Nabeta is brand new at the club and looked off the pace.
If 2 of those players can step up and go on a purple patch of scoring then they will make a real name for themselves and we will finish the season in the play-offs. If they can’t start scoring then we’ll finish about 10th.
