Recent respective form guides

Elgin City's disastrous home run has meant they have managed only 2 draws from the last six matches. While City have scored 6, a worringly large 16 have been leaked at the other end.

Annan Ath.'s away form is none too clever either, seeing them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. Only 5 goals have been registered in this time, with 7 leaked at the wrong end.

Elgin City are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 15 points from 16 matches. Annan Ath. lie just outside the playoff positions in the Irn Bru Scottish Division Three, picking up 20 from their 16 games so far.
