Recent respective form guides

Dunfermline Athletic's disastrous home run has meant they have managed only 2 draws from the last six matches. While Pars have scored 6, a worringly large 14 have been leaked at the other end.

St. Mirren's away form is none too clever either, unbeaten in the last six, but with four of them resulting in draws. The Buddies's have a narrow positive goal difference over these games, with 5 goals for and 3 against.

Dunfermline Athletic find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 30 games have yielded only 19 points.

FootyMad's prediction ...

Nothing seems to be going right for the Pars at home recently, and we can see no immediate turn around in fortunes as the Buddies come away with an easy victory. Away win
