Recent respective form guides

Stirling Albion's woeful home form means they have chalked up just a single victory, with 5 defeats, from the last six. While Binos have scored 5, a worringly large 12 have been leaked at the other end.

Stenhousemuir's away form is none too clever either, seeing them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While the Warriors have hit 8 goals, 12 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Stirling Albion find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 14 games have yielded only 12 points.

Stenhousemuir are just outside the promotion places, in 3rd, having taken 28 points from 17 games.
