History of the Stenhousemuir v Arbroath fixture

Arbroath face a trip to Stenhousemuir at Ochilview Park on Saturday evening, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Red Lichties will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them ending up on the losing side in more than half of the games played between the two.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was earlier this season, the Warriors carving out a narrow 1 - 0 victory in a Scottish Division Two match.

Recent respective form guides

Stenhousemuir's dreadful home form has resulted in just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While Warriors have scored 5, a worringly large 11 have been leaked at the other end.

Arbroath's away form is none too clever either, winning and losing 3 each of the last six games. While the Red Lichties have hit 8 goals, 13 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Stenhousemuir find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 23 games have yielded only 20 points. Arbroath are stuck down in the relegation zone of Bells Scottish Division Two with a return of just 25 points from their 23 games thus far.
