Recent respective form guides

Forfar Ath.'s away form is none too clever either, with 3 victories and just 1 loss from the last six. The games have constituted a decent return of 12 goals for the Loons, and 6 goals against.

Elgin City find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 10 games have yielded only 8 points. Forfar Ath. lie just outside the playoff positions in the Irn Bru Scottish Division Three, picking up 13 from their 10 games so far.
