Recent respective form guides

Ayr United's home form is poor, winning just 2 of the last six, and losing the other 4. While Honest Men have scored 4, a worringly large 14 have been leaked at the other end.

Peterhead's away form is none too clever either, accumulating just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While the The Blue Toon have hit 6 goals, 13 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Ayr Utd. see themselves just below half way in the Irn Bru Scottish Division Two, showing a record of 4 points from their 3 games played so far, Peterhead are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 0 points from 3 matches.
