DUMBARTON are set to welcome back four players for tomorrow’s game against Montrose at the Dumbarton Football Stadium.
Key players in midfield and upfront are set to come back into contention against the promotion-chasing Gable Endies.
The battle at the bottom of cinch League One is getting more intense week on week, and Dumbarton need the points to boost their position in the table.
That fact is not lost on manager Stevie Farrell, who is looking for a response to the disappointing run of recent weeks.
The gaffer said: “We need the losing run to stop, and with games running out, it is imperative we put points on the board as soon as we can.
“Tomorrow’s game is against a team we know we can take points from, having gained four points away to Montrose this season.
“However, they of course won at Dumbarton in December and will fancy their chances of making it a double. They have their own need for the points and will not make it easy for us.
“We are boosted by injured players returning tomorrow and those increased numbers have boosted us. They could make the difference.”
Joshua Oyinsan (pictured) has successfully trained this week and is in contention to return, while Kristoffer Syvertsen could play his first game since mid-August after also training this week.
Skipper Stuart Carswell is also available again after serving a one-match ban, and Paul Paton returns after being a late withdrawal for the Falkirk game.
Ryan McGeever remains out and will be joined by Adam Hutchinson on the sidelines tomorrow, the on-loan Dundee United youngster having picked up an injury.
Supporters attending tomorrow’s game are gently reminded that Covid-19 remains an issue and cases in West Dunbartonshire are currently high.
You are encouraged to take a lateral flow test before coming to the game, and face coverings remain in use in indoor areas, except when seated in Bar 72.
Don’t forget that we also have a number of special offers for admission tomorrow. If you’re a season ticket holder, bring a friend along free of charge to help boost the attendance.
If you can’t make it tomorrow, live streaming is available.
We’ll also have in-play Twitter commentary on our feed @DumbartonFC.
Tomorrow’s match will be refereed by Colin Steven, with Graham McNeillie and Steven Wilson running the lines.
