Recent respective form guides

Stenhousemuir's woeful home form means they have chalked up just a single victory, with 5 defeats, from the last six. While Warriors have scored 4, a worringly large 11 have been leaked at the other end.

Dumbarton's away form is none too clever either, picking up two good wins, but losing three, from the last six. The Sons's have scored 8 goals in these games, but conceded an alarming 9.

Stenhousemuir find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 28 games have yielded only 21 points. Dumbarton are just outside the promotion places, in 3rd, having taken 44 points from 29 games.
