Albirex Niigata remain on top of J-League table with win over Yokohama

Albirex Niigata have kept their unbeaten start to the season by recording a tough victory over Yokohama Marinos.

Marcio Richardes opened up the Albirex account in the 36th minute but had his goal pegged back by Yokohama's Yuzo Kurihara about ten minutes after the re-start.

It looked as though the match was headed for a draw but Kisho Yano managed a 90th minute winner to put Niigata a point clear on top with three wins and a draw from their opening four encounters.
