Last season marked a return to the top half split final round, which they had missed out on in 2022. While dealing with the loss of key player Cesinha for the last five games they struggled until a win on the final day, but only picked up 4 points out of 15. Home form was key with only 3 losses all season. There's been limited business done in the off-season with only the two acquisitions that could be considered starters in def and they are plugging the holes ledt by a key departure in Hong Jeong-un and a regular Jo Jin-woo. Other areas of the pitch looked stretched. Their home form will be key again with their 12,000 seater frequently selling out. Their 3-4-3 system and tactical set up of counter attack football is deeply embedded meaning they are hard to break down and at times lethal on the counter and set pieces. Squad depth is very weak with one or two injuries and the drop off will be considerable in positions like centre back, left wing back and attack. Their key Brazilians Cesinha and Edgar are aging as well. Another of their Brazilians Bobshin's contract runs out in July.


Top half finish will be their aim and they usually target the cup competition.
