Recent respective form guides

Arbroath's disastrous home run has meant they have managed only 2 draws from the last six matches. Red Lichties have conceded a disappointing 11 goals in this period, and managed to convert only 3 of their own chances.

Alloa Ath.'s away form is none too clever either, winning 2 of the last six, but losing the other 4. While the Wasps have hit 6 goals, 17 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Arbroath are stuck down in the relegation zone of Bells Scottish Division Two with a return of just 4 points from their 8 games thus far. Alloa Ath. are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 6 points from 8 matches.
