DUMBARTON are back in Betfred Cup action tomorrow (Tuesday) evening, taking on Queen’s Park at the C&G Systems Stadium.
Sons are boosted by Saturday’s penalty shoot-out victory over Spartans – the club’s first such success since 2008.
Meanwhile, Queen’s Park are playing their first competitive fixture of the season tomorrow, and Sons boss Stevie Aitken knows that they will present a challenge.
He said: “We were happy to come away with the bonus point on Saturday but that’s done now and we concentrate on playing Queen’s Park.
“This is Queens’ first game of the season, so we expect a tough game, as they will look to start positively.
“But we are in good shape physically and are boosted by winning on penalties for the first time in a long time, so hopefully we can take that momentum forward.”
There are no new injuries in the squad and Cammy Ballantyne (pictured) could feature after sitting out Saturday with a thigh strain. Rory Loy is back in training but won’t be risked.
The Spiders, who were relegated from League One via the play-offs last season, are making their first visit to what is now the C&G Systems Stadium since April 2007.
Issue two of Sons View, the club’s matchday programme, is available priced £2.50 tomorrow night and will once again have a ‘retro’ cover to mark its 50th anniversary season.
Season tickets are NOT valid for tomorrow’s game, with admission costing £13 for adults and £7 for concessions. Under-12s go FREE when accompanied by a paying adult.
