Recent respective form guides

Albion Rovers's dreadful home form has resulted in just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While Wee Rovers have scored 8, a worringly large 15 have been leaked at the other end.

Montrose's away form is none too clever either, picking up two good wins, but losing three, from the last six. The Gable Endies's have scored 9 goals in these games, but conceded an alarming 11.

Albion Rvs. are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 9 points from 12 matches. Montrose are just outside the promotion places, in 4th, having taken 17 points from 12 games.
