A first point of the season followed after a 2-2 draw with Derby County before four straight defeats left them occupying a spot in the relegation zone in the opening exchanges of the campaign.
A goal-less draw at Brentford followed before a home 3-2 defeat to Nottingham Forest.
The Club has some success in the Carabao Cup where wins over Wigan Athletic and Leeds United saw them progress to the Third Round, however, they were beaten on penalties by Crawley.
