DUMBARTON hope to return to action at home tomorrow, with Forfar Athletic visitors to Dumbarton Football Stadium.
Despite Tuesday night’s late postponement against Stirling Albion, and the cold weather of the last few days, there is hope that the game will take place.
And manager Stevie Farrell wants his team to kick on from last Saturday’s convincing 2-0 win away to Stranraer which consolidated Sons’ position at the top of cinch League Two.
With the Loons being the first opponents that Dumbarton will complete their series of four games against this season, the business end of the campaign has now been reached.
The manager said: “Tuesday night’s postponement was massively frustrating for us all. It was a game we were looking forward to and were all keen to play.
“It was also an opportunity for us to build on the positive results of last week, against Stranraer and Stenhousemuir, but we have that opportunity again tomorrow.
“Every match counts during the run-in, and we know that Forfar have something of their own to play for. We have to be ready.
“However, the performances of last week have shown how well we can play, and we will be looking for another performance and result to keep us moving along.”
Supporters are reminded that Stevie will take part in a Meet the Manager event from midday, and will answer your questions during the forum.
Sons could welcome Ryan Wallace back into the squad tomorrow, with the forward available to return after two games out with injury.
However, Stuart Carswell, David Wilson and John Gemmell all remain out.
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.
Away supporters will be situated in the west 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.
Forfar will arrive at the Rock tomorrow looking to bounce back from defeat, having lost 3-2 away to East Fife last Saturday. They are currently sixth in the division, but are right in the mix to finish in the top four after a fine run of results earlier this year.
Graham Grainger will referee tomorrow’s game, with assistance from Graham Chambers and Elliott Husband Powton.
