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 6, a worringly large 17 have been leaked at the other end.

Montrose's away form is none too clever either, picking up four victories from the last six. The Gable Endies's have a narrow positive goal difference over these games, with 11 goals for and 9 against.

Elgin City are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 22 points from 26 matches. Montrose find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 27 games have yielded only 19 points.
