FINLAY GRAY and his Dumbarton team-mates might be needing temperatures of minus 130 degrees to get them in shape for Wednesday.
He just hopes that it gets the Sons on fire for the rest of the season.
The midfielder became the club’s joint leading scorer across all competitions for the campaign on Saturday, joining Gregor Buchanan on six by scoring in the 2-2 draw at Stirling Albion.
He wishes it had been the winner, but the point could prove valuable come the end of the season with a difficult obstacle now navigated.
Dumbarton ended the match with several walking wounded, but a Monday night training session and a visit to a Glasgow treatment centre for those who need it will get them going again ahead of the match against Forfar Athletic.
Finlay said: “I was happy with another goal, but it is frustrating to concede twice from corners having also conceded four in the last game here at Stirling.
“Frank McKeown (assistant manager) was here watching Stirling on Tuesday night and remarked on everybody they had in the stadium. That took a bit of pressure off us and left us a bit more free to play.
“These are games you want all season, first against second. They are fixtures you want to play football for.
“I love scoring goals and it’s good to have done it again today, especially with all the fans there as well. I’m just disappointed it wasn’t the winner.
“We are now looking forward to playing against Forfar on Wednesday and today has given us a big boost. It’s all about getting our legs back between now and then.
“We are training on Monday night and have access to the CryoLabs in Glasgow, which gives you treatment at minus 130 degrees.
“It will be good to get a breather when we can, but it is all go at the moment.”
