History of the Montrose v Elgin City fixture

Elgin City face a trip to Montrose at Links Park Ground on Saturday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The City will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 11 and win only 3 of the 17 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was earlier this season, the Gable Endies carving out a narrow 1 - 0 victory in a Scottish Division Three match.

Recent respective form guides

Montrose's home form is poor, winning just 2 of the last six, and losing the other 4. While Gable Endies have scored 5, a worringly large 8 have been leaked at the other end.

Elgin City'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 6 goals, 17 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Montrose lie just outside the playoff positions in the Irn Bru Scottish Division Three, picking up 25 points from their 18 games so far. Elgin City find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 16 games have yielded only 8 points.
