History of the Dumbarton v Elgin City fixture

Dumbarton prepare to entertain Elgin City at Strathclyde Homes Stadium on Saturday afternoon, with high hopes of improving on their excellent record against the opposition, having managed to conjure up a win from 6 of the previous 8 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Strathclyde Homes Stadium was less than a year ago, in February 2008, as the visitors ran out cosy 1-4 winners in a Scottish Division Three match.
