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.

Dumbarton's away form is none too clever either, seeing them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While the Sons have hit 8 goals, 13 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Elgin City find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 19 games have yielded only 9 points. Dumbarton are just outside the promotion places, in 3rd, having taken 34 points from 20 games.
