History of the Arbroath v Stenhousemuir fixture

Arbroath prepare to entertain Stenhousemuir at Gayfield Park on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Red Lichties are clearly on top, having won 41 and lost only 11 of the 64 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Gayfield Park was earlier this season, the Red Lichties carving out a narrow 2-1 victory in a Scottish Division Two match.

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 4, a worringly large 10 have been leaked at the other end.

Stenhousemuir's away form is none too clever either, accumulating just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. Warriors have conceded 13 goals in these games, and only hit 2 in reply.

Arbroath are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 36 points from 32 matches. Stenhousemuir find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 32 games have yielded only 21 points.
