Omiya Ardija failed to wash away a forgettable week mired in an attendance-fixing scandal as Jun Suzuki’s side drew 2-2 with Kawasaki Frontale before their own fans on Sunday.

Omiya went down 2-0 early as Takuro Yajima and Yusuke Mori scored for Kawasaki. The hosts roared back after halftime through goals by Yuki Fukaya and Naoki Ishihara, but could not move out in front as Ardija stayed in 14th place on 28 points with seven games to go. Frontale stayed fifth with 45 points.
