Recent respective form guides

Stirling Albion need to improve on their recent home record of just 3 draws from the previous six. While Binos have scored 4, a worringly large 11 have been leaked at the other end.

Partick Th.'s away form is none too clever either, accumulating just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While the The Jags have hit 6 goals, 12 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Stirling Alb. are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 9 points from 9 matches. Partick Th. are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 9 points from 9 matches.
