Elgin City will welcome Forfar Athletic to Borough Briggs for a matchday 19 fixture in Scotland League Two. The last meeting on 6th November 2021 ended in a Forfar Athletic 2-1 win. Both sides have met ten times in the most recent seasons. Elgin City has won 0 matches, and Forfar Athletic triumphed in 5. Recent outings average 2.90 goals, while both teams score 70% of the time.

Elgin City's latest fixture against Stirling Albion ended in an away 1-0 win. Elgin City was very effective while counter-attacking. In the end, it was enough to make the difference between the two teams. Elgin City was more dominant in the second half and scored in the 68 minute.

Forfar Athletic's recent game against Stenhousemuir ended in a home 3-4 loss. The Loons's strikers were frustrated by the lack of good chances. Forfar Athletic had good chances in both halves and scored in the 11st, 54th and 57th minute.

Since the start of the season, Elgin City is more dominant at home. They have four wins out of 11 games on home soil. The Black & Whites's good defensive display is key to their success. They didn't concede in 36% of home games.

Forfar Athletic has picked up 10 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Forfar Athletic wins 1.45 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Forfar Athletic kept a clean sheet in just 18% of their visits.

The hosts will have to work hard to get a good result. Elgin City has won just 36% of home games. On average they score 1.18 goals and concede 0.91 per game. Forfar Athletic is one of the best teams in the league. On paper, they have a great squad and I expect them to make life difficult for their opponent.

The visitors have a better record and I have to back them. Elgin City wins on average 1.55 points per home game. I am not sure they have what it takes to compete against Forfar Athletic. My prediction is Forfar Athletic to win.

Both sides are dangerous going forward. Elgin City has scored in 82% of home games. Forfar Athletic is a decent match and has scored in all away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: Yes.
