Recent respective form guides

Peterhead's poor home run has seen them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While The Blue Toon have scored 6, a worringly large 10 have been leaked at the other end.

Dumbarton's away form is none too clever either, coming away with three points on 3 occasions, but drawing 1 and losing 2. The Sons's have a narrow positive goal difference over these games, with 9 goals for and 7 against.

Peterhead lie just outside the playoff positions in the Irn Bru Scottish Division Two, picking up 8 points from their 6 games so far. Dumbarton find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 6 games have yielded only 2 points.
