Recent respective form guides

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

Forfar Ath.'s away form is none too clever either, picking up four victories from the last six. Just 7 goals have scored in these games, though to be fair only a measly 4 have been let in at the wrong end.

Montrose find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 17 games have yielded only 6 points. Forfar Ath.'s total of 26 points from their 16 games sees them sitting in the playoff places in Irn Bru Scottish Division Three.
