Recent respective form guides
East Stirlingshire's disastrous home run has meant they have managed only 2 draws from the last six matches. While Shire have scored 6, a worringly large 12 have been leaked at the other end.
Elgin's away form is none too clever either, accumulating just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While the City have hit 10 goals, 20 have hit the back of the wrong net.
East Stirling find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 10 games have yielded only 2 points. Elgin are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 9 points from 11 matches.
