Recent respective form guides

Albion Rovers's woeful home form means they have chalked up just a single victory, with 5 defeats, from the last six. While Wee Rovers have scored 7, a worringly large 15 have been leaked at the other end.

Ayr United's away form is none too clever either, seeing them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. The Honest Men's have scored 11 goals in these games, but conceded an alarming 12.

Albion Rovers find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 28 games have yielded only 17 points.

Ayr United lie just outside the playoff positions in the Irn Bru Scottish Division Two, picking up 38 from their 32 games so far.
