Recent respective form guides

Ayr United have only collected 1 win and 3 draws from the last six home games played. Only 4 goals have been registered in this time, with 6 in the wrong end.

Raith Rovers's away form is none too clever either, seeing them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While the Rovers have hit 6 goals, 10 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Ayr United find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 15 games have yielded only 16 points.

Raith Rovers are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 18 points from 17 matches.
