In a cold driving rain on Sunday, Sanga faced one of the worst teams in the second division of the J.League in the 36th week of the season.
Sanga defeated Gunma 3-2 and remains in third place with 66 points with six matches left in the season. First place Kobe Vissel has 75 and is followed by Gamba Osaka with 74.
The top two teams win automatic promotion to the first division. The next four teams in the table - #3 - #6 - play a two game home-away playoff and one of those teams will go up to J1.
Of the remaining six matches, one is against league-leader Kobe and another is against Gamba.
Next week Sanga plays at home Sapporo, which is fighting to get into the top six.
