Juan Gomez de Liano is also looking to perform better and help Earthfriends Tokyo Z (0-2) nab their first win in the second division when they go on the road against the undefeated Yamagata Wyverns (2-0) at Yamagataken Sogoundo Park.

In other games, Toyama Grouses (0-2) continue to miss the services of Dwight Ramos, who's still under a mandatory 14-day quarantine, when they go on the road against the tough Alvark Tokyo (0-2) at Arena Tachikawa Tachihi, with both teams gunning for their first victory of the season.
