Omiya Grab Point at Toyota

As expected, the less than fully-fit Tamada was rested for this game. Unfortunately, the team is not in a position to also rest Davi, who bagged his eighth goal of the season to secure Grampus a point, but looks as though he could do with a game or two off himself.

As was the case last weekend, this was a game that Nagoya should really have lost. Omiya had much the better of the chances, and should have added to the one goal that scored in the first half. However, sloppy finishing and more heroics from Narazaki between the sticks meant that Grampus stayed alive and were able to earn a share of the points. A result that sees them slip down the table, but remain unbeaten for nine games. The players will get a much deserved rest after next weekend's derby match against Jubilo, when the league takes it mid-season break for national team games. Several of the players look as though they need it.
