J2 vs FC Gifu: Manager’s Comments

Kiyoshi Okuma

We lost our previous game after winning several games in a row so we needed to take all three points from this fixture at our home ground. We made a few changes and had an inexperienced goalkeeper, so we had a few issues that could be improved with regards to our combinations, although we reacted well mentally and were able to recover after reflecting on certain things. However, we conceded from a set piece, which was one of the things we had to be aware of. We had spoken in our meetings about having to keep an eye on the spaces around (Kazuya) Yamamura, but we failed to do that, which is a big thing we need to work on before our next game. Our international players (Yamaguchi and Kim Jim-hyeon) are working hard for their national teams and will be back before our next game, so before their return we wanted to play well.
