Josh Kennedy opened his scoring account for Nagoya Grampus on the weekend but could not prevent the side losing 3-1 to FC Tokyo in the J.League.

The Australian international was making just his second appearance after returning from injury and put Nagoya ahead on the half-hour mark before they conceded three times.

A pair of Lucas penalties preceded Kazuma Watanabe’s 59th minute goal as Tokyo arrested a four-game losing streak to see them jump to ninth on the table, pushing Nagoya to sixth.

Kennedy joined Nagoya from German club Karlsruhe in 2009 and has since scored 48 league goals in 97 outings.
