ANOTHER tough, testing challenge is ahead for Dumbarton tomorrow in the form of a short trip to Paisley to play St Mirren.

Sons and St Mirren will both view tomorrow’s game as vital as the campaign for each club so far hasn’t gone to plan. St Mirren are currently without a win so far in the league season and Sons solitary victory arrived in August when Dundee Utd were defeated 1-0.

The importance of the game is not lost on manager Stevie Aitken, who said: “It was a good fighting performance last week against Dunfermline and we will need to be at our very best tomorrow again. It’s a big game for both clubs, no doubt about it. We’ve have had another good week in training and the lads know what’s at stake.”

Grant Gallagher will be unavailable again tomorrow as his ligament injury is likely to keep him out of the squad for a wee while yet. With no other injuries or suspensions, manager Aitken has a full compliment of players to choose from.

John McKendrick will referee tomorrow’s Ladbrokes Championship match. Assisting Mr McKendrick will be Sean Carr and Chris Phillips.

In the dugout for Saints tomorrow will be Sons’ former assistant boss Jack Ross (pictured) who recently joined the Paisley club from Alloa Athletic. Ben Gordon too is a well kent face to the Dumbarton support. Winger Tom Walsh who was on loan from Rangers at the Cheaper Insurance Direct Stadium last term is now with St Mirren.
