DUMBARTON manager Stevie Aitken is in positive mood as he prepares his squad for the visit of Rangers to the Cheaper Insurance Direct Stadium on Saturday.

Reflecting on this past weekend’s 0-0 draw against Greenock Morton, the boss told the media: “I thought it was a good game and at eleven versus eleven it was an open one too.

“We had good spells and Morton had good spells.

“Obviously after the sending off you are looking to take advantage. It gave us an opportunity to bring Willie Gibson on and really go for the win.

“We did everything bar score. I think a lot of that was down to the goalkeeper’s three world-class saves and a wee bit of bad luck with the one off the post at the end.

“That one summed up what had been happening to us for the last two or three weeks.

“We’ve been playing well in games and maybe not getting what we deserved.

“Morton have been in good form. They had won three in a row and haven’t lost in five now.

“We obviously hadn’t won in three league matches, so we’ll take the point and the positives and move on to the next game.”

Aitken and his squad know what a tough task they have against an in-form and very well equipped Rangers this weekend, but remain determined and upbeat.
