Recent respective form guides

Forfar Athletic's woeful home form means they have chalked up just a single victory, with 5 defeats, from the last six. While Loons have scored 8, a worringly large 12 have been leaked at the other end.

Ayr Utd.'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 7 goals in these games, but conceded an alarming 8.

Forfar Ath. are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 22 points from 23 matches. Ayr Utd. see themselves just below half way in the Bells Scottish Division Two, showing a record of 27 points from their 25 games played so far,
