Recent respective form guides

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

Partick Th.'s away form is none too clever either, losing only 1 of the last six, but drawing 4 of them. The games have constituted a decent return of 12 goals for the The Jags, and 9 goals against.

Stirling Alb. find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 10 games have yielded only 3 points. Partick Th. are just outside the promotion places, in 3rd, having taken 16 points from 9 games.
