Recent respective form guides

Alloa Athletic need to improve on their recent home record of just 3 draws from the previous six. While Wasps have scored 8, a worringly large 13 have been leaked at the other end.

East Fife's away form is none too clever either, collecting 1 win and 3 draws from the last six played. While the Fifers have hit 6 goals, 9 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Alloa find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 13 games have yielded only 9 points. East Fife are just outside the promotion places, in 3rd, having taken 21 points from 13 games.
