Yokohama F. Marinos bid for third succesive J-League win when they entertain Consadole Sapporo on Sunday morning.
Marinos won their second game in a row on Thursday away to high-flying Urawa Reds and will hope to build on that result with another win at home here.
The hosts had been winless until last weekend and though two positive results have helped the side climb two places clear of the relegation zone, there a still rumblings of discontent amongst their fans with regards to the club's management team.
Brazilian striker Marquinos made his debut at last for Yokohama during the week and scored a late winner after coming on as a substitute, and he should represent the home side's principal attacking threat against bottom of the table Sapporo.
Consadole Sapporo won their first match of the season (nine games in) last time out against the notoriously inconsistent Cerezo Osaka.
Midfielder Haga was a welcome returnee from injury in that 3-1 triumph and they'll need him to be at his commanding best if they are to get anything from this one.
