Recent respective form guides

Albion Rovers's poor home run has seen them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While Wee Rovers have scored 7, a worringly large 12 have been leaked at the other end.

East Fife's away form is none too clever either, winning 2 of the last six, but losing the other 4. While the Fifers have hit 6 goals, 13 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Albion Rvs. are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 18 points from 18 matches. East Fife's total of 29 points from their 20 games sees them sitting in the playoff places in Bells Scottish Division Three.
