DUMBARTON face a make or break game tomorrow when eighth-placed Peterhead visit the Dumbarton Football Stadium.
Follow up last week’s drama at Alloa with another win, and Sons will put themselves in with a chance of finishing away from the bottom two spots in cinch League One.
Spirits are high after the three points gained in Clackmannanshire, and gaffer Stevie Farrell is looking for those to be rewarded.
But the gaffer is also well aware from previous experience against Peterhead this season that it will not be an easy game.
He said: “We’re looking forward to the game, but we must be mindful that it’s only one game of four that we have got to perform in until the end of the season.
“The players have shown in the last two weeks how much they are up for the fight, but we must keep translating that into results.
“Our previous three games against Peterhead this season have shown how difficult it is to get a result against them. They will want to make it a clean sweep and put even more daylight between themselves and the bottom two.
“It is up to us to stop them, and if we can continue to perform as we did in the late stages last week, we will give ourselves every chance.”
Once again, Ryan McGeever and Adam Hutchinson are the only two players missing through injury ahead of tomorrow.
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 to cast your votes tomorrow for your Sonstrust player and young player of the year – ballot papers will be available.
If you can’t make it tomorrow, then live streaming is available. We will also have in-play Twitter commentary on our feed @DumbartonFC.
Calum Scott is the referee for tomorrow’s game, and will have assistance from Gary Hilland and Michael McDermid.
