Elgin City prepare to entertain Forfar Athletic at Borough Briggs on Saturday afternoon, aiming to preserve their record of never having lost at home to the visitors. Of the two previous meetings, the City have won one and drawn one.
The most recent encounter between these two sides at Borough Briggs was less than a year ago, in March 2008, with Elgin City running out comfortable 3-1 winners in a Scottish Division Three match.
