Kashima Antlers have jumped back on top of the J-League table after a 1-0 victory over Vissel Kobe on Wednesday.

An early goal from defender Daiki Iwamasa was the difference between the two teams and ensured the Antlers would go back to the top spot, overtaking Urawa Reds.

Despite their fourth loss of the season, Kobe are tenth on the table and still in striking distance of the top four.
