Annan Ath. prepare to entertain Albion Rovers at Galabank on Saturday afternoon, needing to improve on a poor record between the sides. The visitors have won 2 of the 5 previous games, with the Black and Golds winning just 1.
The most recent encounter between these two sides at Galabank was earlier this season, when they eased past their opponents in a high-scoring 4-1 thriller, in a Scottish Division Three match.

FootyMad's prediction ...
Its been a distinctly poor show from Annan Ath. at home in recent games, and, though I cannot see a run starting here, I do think the Black and Golds will at least gain a draw. Score draw
