Recent respective form guides

Stirling Albion's home form is poor, winning just 2 of the last six, and losing the other 4. While Binos have scored 11, a worringly large 14 have been leaked at the other end.

Annan Athletic's away form is none too clever either, seeing them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While the Black and Golds have hit 8 goals, 14 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Stirling Albion find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 17 games have yielded only 14 points.
