Recent respective form guides

Albion Rovers's dreadful home form has resulted in just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While Wee Rovers have scored 5, a worringly large 9 have been leaked at the other end.

Cowdenbeath's away form is none too clever either, picking up four victories from the last six. Just 7 goals have scored in these games, though to be fair only a measly 3 have been let in at the wrong end.

Albion Rvs. see themselves just below half way in the Irn Bru Scottish Division Three, showing a record of 10 points from their 10 games played so far, Cowdenbeath are just outside the promotion places, in 3rd, having taken 19 points from 10 games.
