Recent respective form guides

Ayr United's home form is poor, winning just 2 of the last six, and losing the other 4. While Honest Men have scored 9, a worringly large 14 have been leaked at the other end.

Alloa Ath.'s away form is none too clever either, accumulating just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While the Wasps have hit 6 goals, 11 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Ayr Utd. are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 20 points from 20 matches. Alloa Ath.'s total of 33 points from their 21 games sees them sitting in the playoff places in Irn Bru Scottish Division Two.
