Recent respective form guides

Gretna's disastrous home run has meant they have managed only 2 draws from the last six matches. While Black and Whites have scored 4, a worringly large 11 have been leaked at the other end.

Falkirk's away form is none too clever either, with 3 victories and just 1 loss from the last six. The games have constituted a decent return of 11 goals for the Bairns, and 6 goals against.

Gretna find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 21 games have yielded only 10 points. Falkirk's 32 points from 22 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 6th position.
