Recent respective form guides

Airdrie United need to improve on their recent home record of just 3 draws from the previous six. While Diamonds have scored 8, a worringly large 14 have been leaked at the other end.

Falkirk's away form is none too clever either, picking up two good wins, but losing three, from the last six. While the Bairns have hit 7 goals, 11 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Airdrie United find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 29 games have yielded only 19 points.

Falkirk's 40 points from 29 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 5th position.
