Recent respective form guides

Elgin City's home form is most definitely relegation standard, collecting just 1 solitary point from the last six. City have conceded a disappointing 12 goals in this period, and managed to convert only 3 of their own chances.

Albion Rvs.'s away form is none too clever either, coming away with three points on 3 occasions, but drawing 1 and losing 2. The games have constituted a decent return of 8 goals for the Wee Rovers, and 6 goals against.

Elgin City find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 20 games have yielded only 9 points. Albion Rvs. lie just outside the playoff positions in the Irn Bru Scottish Division Three, picking up 29 from their 20 games so far.
