Recent respective form guides

Stranraer need to improve on their recent home record of just 3 draws from the previous six. While The Blues have scored 5, a worringly large 13 have been leaked at the other end.

Ayr Utd.'s away form is none too clever either, coming away with three points on 3 occasions, but drawing 1 and losing 2. The games have constituted a decent return of 10 goals for the Honest Men, and 6 goals against.

Stranraer find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 17 games have yielded only 11 points. Ayr Utd. are just outside the promotion places, in 2nd, having taken 37 points from 18 games.
