History of the Albion Rovers v Arbroath fixture

Arbroath face a trip to Albion Rovers at Cliftonhill on Saturday afternoon, having the edge over their hosts in previous meetings. The visitors have won 26 of the 66 previous games, with the hosts winning just 25.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in December 2004, with Arbroath inflicting a narrow 0 - 1 defeat upon the Wee Rovers in a Scottish F.A. Cup match.

Recent respective form guides

Albion Rovers's dreadful home form has resulted in just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While Wee Rovers have scored 5, a worringly large 18 have been leaked at the other end.

Arbroath's away form is none too clever either, collecting just 4 draws from the last six contests. While the Red Lichties have hit 11 goals, 15 have hit the back of the wrong net.
