Fujieda MYFC team news
After picking up four points from their last two matches, things are definitely looking up for Fujieda. They sit in 9th place with three games to go and there is a possibility of finishing in the top half, if MYFC finish the season strongly.

The main factor behind the recent good form is striker Tsugutoshi Oishi. He has scored all four of Fujieda’s goals in their last two games, meaning he is just one behind Koji Suzuki as the league’s top scorer with 16 goals. If he carries on his good form, MYFC have a great chance of a positive result tomorrow.

Elsewhere, the team has been same the same for the past two matches and whilst results are going well, why change the line up? If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
