Recent respective form guides

Elgin City's woeful home form means they have chalked up just a single victory, with 5 defeats, from the last six. While City have scored 4, a worringly large 9 have been leaked at the other end.

Montrose's away form is none too clever either, picking up two good wins, but losing three, from the last six. While the Gable Endies have hit 4 goals, 8 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Elgin City are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 31 points from 35 matches. Montrose find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 35 games have yielded only 24 points.

FootyMad's prediction ...

An indifferent set of results for Montrose on the road, and I believe this game is only going to yield a solitary point for the Gable Endies. No-score draw
