Airdrie United's dreadful home form has resulted in just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While The Diamonds have scored 5, a worringly large 11 have been leaked at the other end.

Partick Th.'s away form is none too clever either, with 3 victories and just 1 loss from the last six. The games have constituted a decent return of 11 goals for the The Jags, and 19 goals against.

Airdrie Utd. are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 7 points from 9 matches. Partick Th.'s 17 points from 9 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 4th position.
