Recent respective form guides

Montrose's disastrous home run has meant they have managed only 2 draws from the last six matches. While Gable Endies have scored 5, a worringly large 12 have been leaked at the other end.

Forfar Ath.'s away form is none too clever either, tasting just one defeat in their last six, and picking up four good wins. The games have constituted a decent return of 11 goals for the Loons, and 13 goals against.

Montrose find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 25 games have yielded only 13 points. Forfar Ath. are just outside the promotion places, in 3rd, having taken 40 points from 25 games.
