Recent respective form guides

Peterhead's poor home run has seen them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While Blue Toon have scored 7, a worringly large 10 have been leaked at the other end.

Alloa Athletic's away form is none too clever either, winning and losing 3 each of the last six games. While the Wasps have hit 5 goals, 10 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Peterhead are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 5 points from 11 matches.

Alloa Athletic are just outside the promotion places, in 2nd, having taken 23 points from 11 games.
