Mito takes its second point in the standings from its second scoreless draw yesterday.
Reports show Mito played well, and coach Maeda said the strategy of holding Tokushima scoreless and then trying to take the lead in the second half worked well. Obviously the attempts to take a point were not successful, though.
Mito's next four games are against teams traditionally strong in J2. If Mito cannot win any of those games, the chance to rise to J1 will fall to realistic impossibility, and Mito will likely stay on the bottom of the rankings. A win against Kyoto this week would be huge.
