Kashiwa Reysol heaped further pressure on Kashima Antlers and beleaguered manager Masatada Ishii with a 2-0 win over the first-stage champions on Saturday.

Ishii returned to the Antlers bench at Hitachi Stadium for his first J. League match since missing Kashima’s 2-2 draw with Yokohama F. Marinos on Aug. 27 due to anxiety issues, having begun his rehabilitation in a 3-0 Emperor’s Cup win over Kataller Toyama on Sept. 3.
