Recent respective form guides

Stranraer's poor home run has seen them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While The Blues have scored 6, a worringly large 10 have been leaked at the other end.

Elgin City's away form is none too clever either, coming away with three points on 3 occasions, but drawing 1 and losing 2. The games have constituted a decent return of 10 goals for the City, and 18 goals against.

Stranraer see themselves just below half way in the Irn Bru Scottish Division Three, showing a record of 20 points from their 19 games played so far, Elgin City are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 18 points from 18 matches.
