Recent respective form guides

Stranraer's poor home run has seen them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While The Blues have scored 6, a worringly large 10 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 8 goals in these games, but conceded an alarming 10.

Stranraer see themselves just below half way in the Irn Bru Scottish Division Three, showing a record of 23 points from their 20 games played so far, Montrose find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 23 games have yielded only 10 points.
