Recent respective form guides

Alloa Athletic's poor home run has seen them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While Wasps have scored 5, a worringly large 10 have been leaked at the other end.

Cowdenbeath's away form is none too clever either, with two wins, two draws, and two defeats. The games have constituted a decent return of 12 goals for the Blue Brazil, and 14 goals against.

Alloa Ath. are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 6 points from 9 matches. Cowdenbeath's total of 14 points from their 9 games sees them sitting in the playoff places in Bells Scottish Division Two.
