Recent respective form guides

Arbroath's disastrous home run has meant they have managed only 2 draws from the last six matches. While Red Lichties have scored 4, a worringly large 11 have been leaked at the other end.

Alloa Ath.'s away form is none too clever either, winning and losing 3 each of the last six games. The Wasps's have scored 10 goals in these games, but conceded an alarming 11.

Arbroath are stuck down in the relegation zone of Bells Scottish Division Two with a return of just 26 points from their 26 games thus far. Alloa Ath. are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 35 points from 26 matches.
