Recent respective form guides

Stranraer's home form is most definitely relegation standard, collecting just 1 solitary point from the last six. While The Blues have scored 6, a worringly large 24 have been leaked at the other end.

Ayr Utd.'s away form is none too clever either, winning and losing 3 each of the last six games. A generous 8 goals have been both scored and conceded in this period.
