FootyMAD Albion Rovers match preview

History of the Elgin City v Albion Rovers fixture

Elgin prepare to entertain Albion Rovers at Borough Briggs on Saturday evening, needing to improve on a poor record between the sides. Only 2 wins have been recorded in the 6 games, with 3 ending in defeat.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Borough Briggs was less than a year ago, in March 2003, with Albion Rvs inflicting a narrow 1-2 defeat upon the City in a Scottish Division Three match.

Recent respective form guides

Elgin City's poor home run has seen them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While City have scored 10, a worringly large 17 have been leaked at the other end.

Albion Rvs's away form is none too clever either, accumulating just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While the Wee Rovers have hit 10 goals, 13 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Elgin see themselves just below half way in the Bells Scottish Division Three, showing a record of 8 points from their 9 games played so far, Albion Rvs are just outside the promotion places, in 4th, having taken 13 points from 9 games.

FootyMad's prediction ...

Its been a distinctly poor show from Elgin at home in recent games, and, though I cannot see a run starting here, I do think the City will at least gain a draw. Score draw
