The 27-year old was among the starting XI in his first five appearances of the season. He was however confined to starting from the bench in his next eight outings, playing no more than 13 minutes on each occasion.
He started on the right side of a four-man midfield this time and played for 78 minutes before Yoshinori Muto came on to replace him.
