Vissel catch up Gamba thanks to Mazinho

Mazinho's late strike for Kobe against relegation-threatened Kataller Toyama, means Vissel are now only behind J2-league-leaders Gamba Osaka on goal difference. Vissel took full advantage of their Kansai rivals slip-up at home to another side facing the drop, Giravanz Kitakyushu. JEF United move into fourth with an impressive 3-0 win at Montedio Yamagata, while the other upwardly mobile team in the top 6 is Avispa Fukuoka, who triumphed 2-0 at home to Tochigi.
