DUMBARTON are due to return to home action tomorrow with an important visit from eighth-placed Alloa Athletic to the Moreroom.com Stadium.
It is hoped to kick on from last week’s victory at Clyde, but it is not just football that fingers are being crossed for.
Severe weather this week has left the game in significant doubt, but for manager Stevie Farrell, it is business as usual until he is officially told otherwise.
If the match, sponsored by the Clyde Bar in Helensburgh, is able to take place, then Sons have an opportunity to put daylight between themselves and the bottom two places in League One.
The gaffer said: “If the game goes ahead, then the task is simple – pick up where we left off last Saturday at Broadwood.
“I was delighted by how we attacked in the first half, and showed resolve in the second so that Clyde could not eat further into our lead.
“However, as always, that game is now in the past and tomorrow is another game. Alloa are starting a new chapter with the recent changes at the club and we must respect the challenge.
“They need the points as much as we do, for the same reasons as we do. We must be on our game as we were last week to get the result we need.”
We do not expect a pitch inspection to take place today (Friday). However, should one be called today or tomorrow, we will update our supporters via the club website and social media.
Ryan McGeever and Kristoffer Syvertsen remain out injured, and Josh Oyinsan is set to miss out again after being a late call-off last week.
Supporters attending the match are asked to wear face coverings in indoor areas, except when seated in Bar 72, and encouraged to take a lateral flow test before arrival at the Moreroom.com Stadium.
If you can’t attend the stadium tomorrow, live streaming is available as per our previous story.
You can also take part in our 50/50 half time draw remotely – all details are here. On our last home matchday it was won by a supporter in Canada – this time, it could be you.
Lloyd Wilson is due to referee the game, with assistance from Ross MacLeod and David McKniff.
