Fujieda MYFC team news
Following last weeks’ 3-1 win over J League U22, only Fujieda’s second win of the season, it is unlikely that manager Musashi Mizushima will make many changes.
However, one change could be the return of defender Desmond. He missed last the game last Sunday because of an internal ban following his reaction to a booking the week before in the 2-1 loss to Blaublitz Akita. That ban is likely to be over in time for this Sunday’s game. If the Italian-Ghanaian does make it back, he’s likely to replace Ryuji Mochizuki at centre back.
Elsewhere, there are unlikely to be many changes, with Fujieda hoping to carry the momentum from the victory last Sunday to this weekend.
A win could see Fujieda leapfrog Fukushima United into 10th place.

Since earning their first win of the season on match day 8 in a 2-1 away over Fujieda, YSCC have lost all their games since. They remain on six points, which were accumulated through one and three draws.
They are currently bottom of the J3 table, three points behind Fujieda but a win would be unlikely to see them move off the bottom, as they have a much inferior goal difference.
Their away victory of Fujieda was the only time they have scored a goal away from home this year, as currently they have scored just seven goals, with two of them being away, having both been scored in the win over MYFC.
The club’s current top scorer is Akio Yoshida, who has three goals, two more than any other YSCC player. The forward scored in the win over Fujieda, as well as the 1-1 draw with Machida Zelvia. His other goal came in the 3-2 loss last week against Sagamihara.
