DUMBARTON boss Ian Murray is really pleased that his charges have hit form in the SPFL Championship, and is working hard to ensure that the positivity continues.
“Anyone who can work out this league is a genius,” he told the press after the important 3-1 win against Alloa Athletic on Saturday.
“We got off to a poor start to the season, but after our 3-2 defeat to Hibs in the League Cup I wasn’t too unhappy, because we were playing well. That’s started to pay off.”
Sons lost the first three games of the Championship campaign, but are now unbeaten in four matches – with two wins and two draws, including one point off impressive division leaders Heart of Midlothian.
It’s an impressive display for a part-time team, but the staff and squad are taking nothing or granted as they prepare to meet foot-of-the-table side Cowdenbeath this coming weekend.
The Sons gaffer declared: “We were ruthless in front of goal last season and it has been the same this season.
“We know we will score goals. It is still early in the campaign but I am delighted we have a good points tally.
“This league is all over the place at the moment with everyone still settling in. That is why it is so tough. But we have hit a bit of form and must keep that going.”
The Alloa match report is now on line, with photos to follow.
