Of the 19 matches played, they won only 6 games while drawing on 5 and losing on 8 other occasions. Their total goals to conceding ratio stands at 22:31 which shows their deteriorating defensive structure.

The Reds lost the past 2 league fixtures against Leuven and Warengem conceding 3 goals in total. They were also kicked out of the Belgium Cup at Quarter finals by Gent before Christmas.
