Recent respective form guides

Annan Athletic's poor home run has seen them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While Black and Golds have scored 8, a worringly large 11 have been leaked at the other end.

Montrose's away form is none too clever either, accumulating just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While the Gable Endies have hit 6 goals, 16 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Annan Athletic lie just outside the playoff positions in the Irn Bru Scottish Division Three, picking up 41 points from their 29 games so far.

Montrose are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 26 points from 29 matches.
