Recent respective form guides

Stranraer's home form is most definitely relegation standard, collecting just 1 solitary point from the last six. While The Blues have scored 5, a worringly large 24 have been leaked at the other end.

Alloa Ath.'s away form is none too clever either, seeing them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While the Wasps have hit 4 goals, 8 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Stranraer find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 23 games have yielded only 12 points. Alloa Ath. are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 26 points from 25 matches.
