After their win away to CD Plus Ultra in the first game of the New Year, Mazarrón FC suffered a run of poor results with only one win and two draws in their next five games. This saw them drop out of the playoff positions and, at the time, of writing they were in fifth position, three points behind Atletico Pulpileno. The dreadful state of the pitch at the Estadio Municipal did not help matters as the bare and bumpy surface was not conducive to good football. Only two points were gained from three home games before MFC took the decision that maintenance work was needed to repair the pitch and home games were transferred to the Sports Complex, starting with the game against CFD Minera on 16th February.
There were a number of changes in personnel in January which may have contributed to the poor results with new players taking time to settle in. Striker Musoni, who had made a good impression during his stay at MFC, left to joint frontrunners Lorca Deportiva and second choice keeper Francisco Anduguar left for CAP Ciudad de Murcia. Into their places came striker Borja Mir, left back Miguel Ruiz and goalkeeper Jose Martinez.
Despite the disappointing results, the MFC defence continued its impressive work with Nacho outstanding at the heart of it and Josema giving 100% performances in every game at right back. Only three goals were conceded in eight games, all of them against the top two teams in the league. Goals, however, were still hard to come by with only six scored in those same eight games.
