Recent respective form guides

Arbroath's poor home run has seen them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While Red Lichties have scored 5, a worringly large 8 have been leaked at the other end.

Airdrie Utd.'s away form is none too clever either, with an unbeaten run in the last six, four of them victories. The games have constituted a decent return of 9 goals for the Diamonds, and 3 goals against.

Arbroath are stuck down in the relegation zone of Bells Scottish Division Two with a return of just 33 points from their 30 games thus far. Airdrie Utd. are holding the final promotion place in the Bells Scottish Division Two, and have accumulated 56 points from the 30 games they have played so far.
