DUMBARTON have a quick return to action tomorrow when Stenhousemuir are visitors to Dumbarton Football Stadium for the second time in 32 days.
Having beaten the Warriors 1-0 on that evening, Sons are looking for a repeat of that result to take another positive step forward.
Wednesday evening’s 1-0 defeat to Forfar Athletic was a blow, but manager Stevie Farrell is confident in his players’ ability to recover from it quickly.
All that was missing on Wednesday was a finish to the many chances created, and the manager wants that added to tomorrow’s performance.
He said: “We remain focused on the battle we are in at the top of the table, and nobody is giving up – we are all determined to give this battle our very best shot, and hopefully be rewarded.
“It goes without saying that we were disappointed by Wednesday’s result, and we thought the players’ efforts merited more than they got on the night.
“That game, however, is done, and now we move on to the next opportunity at home to Stenhousemuir, which we are looking forward to.
“We must remain positive, despite the injuries we currently have, and know that it is a fixture we can win – and have won before. If we keep up the good elements of Wednesday, and take our chances, we can win it again.”
Kalvin Orsi had been hopeful of playing against Forfar Athletic, but failed a fitness test before the game. He is again out tomorrow along with Stuart Carswell, Declan Byrne, Joe McKee, David Wilson and John Gemmell.
It will be the same pool of 15 players who were available for Wednesday evening’s game who will be involved again.
Admission for fans paying on the day costs £15 for adults, £10 for over-65s and students (valid ID required), and £5 for under-16s. Season ticket holders and Young Sons members will of course get in with their passes as usual.
Away supporters will be situated in the west section of the stand, but are welcome to enter through the home turnstiles and make use of Bar 72 before the game.
There is also the chance to win a cash windfall in our half time draw, which you can purchase a ticket for in advance.
Stenhousemuir had no midweek action, with their last game being Saturday’s 1-1 draw at home to Forfar Athletic.
Chris Fordyce is the referee tomorrow, and will have assistance from David Roome and Paul McAvinue.
