Full predictions, stats & game poll for the Stirling Albion v Elgin City match are shown here (plus the best game odds).
Stirling Albion will be hoping to bounce back here following the 2-0 League Two loss in their previous game against Dumbarton.
Declan Byrne (1', 5') was the scorer for Dumbarton.
Fixtures with Stirling Albion have often been lively ones lately with a lot of goalmouth action being the norm. Over their past 6 games alone, a grand total of 20 goals have flown in for both teams combined (at an average of 3.33 goals per game) with 11 of those being chalked up by Stirling Albion. Such a pattern isn’t assured to be carried forward here, of course.
Coming into this meeting, Stirling Albion haven't won against Elgin City in their previous 3 league games.
Following on from being beaten in their last game against East Fife in League Two competition, Elgin City and their travelling supporters will be hoping that they can get a better result in this one.
The only name on the scoresheet from Elgin City was Darryl McHardy (76'). Scott Shepherd (28', 40') and Scott Mercer (59') scored for East Fife.
A succession of pretty underwhelming displays from the Elgin City defence has resulted in a sum of 18 goals being surrendered by them in just their previous six fixtures. They will certainly want to improve on this sub-par area of their play.
Ahead of this clash, Elgin City are undefeated by Stirling Albion when having played them away from home in the previous 4 league games. A very good run of results for them.
