THE three-match run away from home comes to an end for Dumbarton tomorrow with the short trip to Broadwood to face Clyde.
It is a journey Sons have previously made successfully, having won 3-0 in Cumbernauld on the opening day of the league season.
The game brings to a close a week of travelling, with trips to Montrose and Queen’s Park having yielded one point between them.
Manager Stevie Farrell wants a reaction to the defeat against Queen’s Park, where his side’s efforts merited more.
The gaffer said: “We competed well at Firhill and deserved a better result from the game than we ended up with.
“However, the bottom line is that it was another defeat and we weren’t able to boost our league position.
“We cannot feel sorry for ourselves; we must go to Broadwood tomorrow and continue the same high workrate – but be ruthless when chances come, and equally ruthless in keeping them out at the other end.
“With the season coming into the home straight, every point is important wherever you are in the table and must be worked hard for.
“We will need to be on our game, as we were on our previous visit, to get the three points at Broadwood.”
The gaffer was boosted by the return of Ross MacLean to full training last night and the forward is in contention for a place in the squad tomorrow.
Ryan McGeever and Kristoffer Syvertsen will again miss out with injury.
If you are making the trip to Broadwood tomorrow, the stadium bar is open from 1pm and all home and away supporters are welcome. It is situated on the first floor of the stadium.
It is also recommended that you purchase a ticket in advance of the trip to avoid queues at the turnstiles. Details of this, and live streaming of the game, are available here.
Steven Reid is the referee tomorrow and will have assistance from John McCrossan and Gordon McCabe.
