J.League Division 1: Sat, 18th July 2009
|2 - 2|
(KIKUCHI sent off 89')
Venue: Todoroki Stadium
If Frontale are hoping to narrow the gap at the top of the table, they really need to be picking up three points in home games like this one. That said, I hear it was a wonder-goal from Tsuneyasu Miyamoto that levelled the tie, and there's no accounting for that sort of thing.
Nice to see Kikuchi getting his name up in lights. Not so nice to see it up again for the sending off, though. The defense is frail enough without the likes of Mori and Kikuchi getting themselves suspended.
One gets the feeling that a return to winning ways in Kyoto next week is needed if Frontale are to keep the J.League bit between their teeth.
