Ayr United's home form is poor, winning just 2 of the last six, and losing the other 4. The goals for column just outweighs the goals against over this period, 8 to 6.

Peterhead's away form is none too clever either, winning 2 of the last six, but losing the other 4. While the The Blue Toon have hit 11 goals, 14 have hit the back of the wrong net.
