Postecoglou's Yokohama move within one point of top spot


Ange Postecoglou's Yokohama F. Marinos have moved to within one point of first place in the J1 League after defeating Shonan Bellmare 3-1 on Saturday.

Goals from Teruhito Nakagawa, Mateus and Marcos Junior sent Yokohama on their way, with Ryogo Yamasaki's 92nd-minute effort proving mere consolation for the visitors.

Yokohama remain in third place as a result of the victory, but now trail both league leaders Kashima Antlers and FC Tokyo by a solitary point with just five games remaining in the season.
