MATCH PREVIEW: STENHOUSEMUIR VS DUMBARTON

Dumbarton are on the road again tomorrow as they travel to Ochilview where league leaders Stenhousemuir await [kick-off 3.00pm].

Sons will be looking to make it back-to-back victories after last weeks win at Elgin, whilst the hosts will be looking for a reaction after their run of 13 consecutive wins came to an end at Peterhead last week.

Stevie Farrell’s side have already won in Larbert this season and he believes his troops are capable of doing the same again.

He told the clubs website: “We showed both sides to our game in Elgin last weekend with a good attacking performance but also being able to see the game out in a good manner.

“The one thing we were missing was a couple more goals that our play deserved, which generally hasn’t been like us this season.

“The run Stenhousemuir were on was extraordinary and they should be applauded for it, and they will be looking to start a new run tomorrow.

“We’ll be doing all we can to make sure that doesn’t happen and if put in the type of performance we are capable of, then we’ll give ourselves every chance.”

In team news long-term injuries Brett Long, Mark Durnan, Greig Young and Callum Wilson remain out. Kalvin Orsi will undergo a fitness test ahead of kick-off.

It’s two away wins in the two fixtures between the sides this season. Dumbarton blew Stenny away at Ochilview in August as they raced into a 4-0 half-time lead thanks to a brace from Ross MacLean and Sean Crighton and Jinky Hilton goals. Matty Aitken pulled a couple back after the break for the hosts.

The Warriors got revenge in December when James Berry diverted a shot into the net to earn a late three points for the visitors.

The Sons Supporters Trust travel group are running a bus to the game which departs Church Street at 12.30pm. For details, contact Gillie Brough on 07948 532539 or on Facebook Messenger.
