Last weekend saw a bore draw away to FC Ryukyu, but it did extend Fujieda’s unbeaten run to three matches. There were also a couple of other positives too. Daisuke Ichikawa started his first game of the season and forward Takuya Sasagaki made his debut for the team, when he came off the bench.

SC Sagamihara are enjoying a solid start to their first season in the J3 League. Currently in sixth place, they have won their last two games, including an impressive 1-0 victory over fourth place Gainare Tottori last weekend.

However, those two wins were after a spell of eight games without a win so Sagamihara could well be better placed in the league, if it wasn’t for that terrible run of form.

The side have kept six clean sheets this season so far, one more than Fujieda, but only one of those six have been away from home.

The club’s top scorer this season is left winger Keita Sogabe, who has six goals so far this year, including one in the 2-2 draw with Fujieda in July.

Sagamihara’s star player though is forward Naohiro Takahara. The former Japan international, who won over 50 caps with the Samurai Blue, is the club’s second highest scorer this year with five goals. The former Hamburg player also has four assists this year.
