PRIOR to facing Forfar Athletic last month, David Wilson had scored once in 48 games for Dumbarton.

He now has three goals in his last four games – and it is a habit he is not intending to break anytime soon.

The midfielder scored the clinching second goal in Saturday’s 2-0 win over East Fife in the game that marked Sons’ 150th anniversary.

Having had to wait patiently for a chance in the team, David, who returned to the club from Albion Rovers in the close season, has certainly grabbed the opportunity.

Speaking to dumbartonfootballclub.com, David said: “I certainly hope there are more goals to come. I will need to keep it going for the next half of the season and see how many I can get.

“I couldn’t get in the team at the start of the season because of how it was set out and because the players who were playing were doing really well.

“But when I got the chance in the team I was determined to take it, and it has been going well.

“The gaffer was speaking to us before the game, making the point that today had to be as good as it could be. It was a big day for the fans and hopefully winning the game has made it even better.

“We were comfortable in the first half and had maybe three good chances. In the second it died a death a bit, but we saw it out and deserved the three points.”

To some onlookers, victory may have taken on greater significance with Stirling Albion having won 2-1 at Elgin City the previous evening.

But David added: “We’re not really paying attention to what other teams are doing. We just need to concentrate on ourselves and keep racking the points up as much as we can.

“We want to stay at the top of the division as much as possible. We’ve been there since the start of the season and it’s a position we want to keep.

“But we know it will be really tough when we play Albion Rovers this Saturday at Cliftonhill. It is a difficult place to go, and I know that having been there as a home and away player.

“We will need to prepare this week as best we can.”
