Omiya Ardija went top of the J.League with a convincing 4-0 win over Kashiwa Reysol today.

Milivoje Novakovic opened the scoring in the 18th minute before Shohei Takahashi doubled the lead on the stroke of half-time.

Novakovic then bagged his second of the game, and third of the season, from the penalty spot nine minutes after the break and Cho Young-cheol wrapped up the scoring eight minutes later.

The result leaves the Squirrels two points clear of Yokohama F Marinos who face Vantforet Kofu tomorrow.
