Recent respective form guides

Montrose's dreadful home form has resulted in just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While Gable Endies have scored 9, a worringly large 13 have been leaked at the other end.

Montrose see themselves just below half way in the Bells Scottish Division Three, showing a record of 27 points from their 27 games played so far, Arbroath are just outside the promotion places, in 3rd, having taken 45 points from 24 games.
