History of the Montrose v Elgin City fixture

Montrose prepare to entertain Elgin City at Links Park Ground on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Gable Endies are clearly on top, having won 12 and lost only 3 of the 19 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Links Park Ground was earlier this season, where the two sides shared the spoils courtesy of a 1-1 final scoreline in a Scottish Division Three match.
