Dumbarton play their penultimate home match of the cinch League Two season tomorrow when East Fife make the journey to G82.
Sons come into the game looking to make it three games without defeat after last weekends win over Bonnyrigg Rose was followed up with a goalless draw against league leaders Stirling Albion on Tuesday evening.
The Fifers have plenty to play for themselves as they bid to make the play-offs in a battle that looks set to go down to the final day with four teams fighting for the final two spots and come into the game having hit Stranraer for eight last weekend.
Boss Stevie Farrell is buoyant about recent performances but knows his side will need to be at their best yet again tomorrow.
Speaking to the clubs website, he said: “We had some good openings on Tuesday evening and maybe could have won it late on.
“There have been plenty of promising aspects from the last two fixtures and the goal tomorrow is to carry on that momentum.
“As has been the case with most games in recent weeks, every team is still fighting for points for a variety of different reasons and tomorrow proves to be no different.
“East Fife proved last weekend just how dangerous they can be in front of goal, and we will need every single one of our players to be on top of their game if we want to secure another positive result.”
Sons have the upper hand when it comes to meetings with the Methil side so far this season having won 2 out of the 3 fixtures.
Declan Byrne scored in a 1-0 win in Fife back in September before goals from Gregor Buchanan and David Wilson ensured that Dumbarton celebrated their 150th birthday with a 2-0 victory at The Rock on Christmas Eve whilst East Fife earned a 2-0 success when the sides met at Bayview in February.
It’s a case of as you were when it comes to team news for tomorrow, with the same pool of 16 players available to the Sons boss. Joe McKee, Ryan Wallace and Edin Lynch are expected to return to full training next week and should be in contention for the trip to Elgin.
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. Turnstiles and Bar 72 will open from 1:30pm.
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.
