DUMBARTON start a double header away to cinch League One’s top two against Airdrieonians tomorrow, determined to continue the recent sequence of results for their own cause.
Unbeaten in three games, and with five points taken out of nine, Sons can afford to be confident ahead of the visit to the Excelsior Stadium.
However, the Diamonds have a five-point gap to where they want to be, and are running out of fixtures to make it up.
It is a fixture where each team has its own agenda, and Dumbarton manager Stevie Farrell is hopeful his side can be the ones whose cause is boosted.
He said: “We know how tough it is going to be, but we have to go there with our heads up after the results we’ve been putting on the board.
“While the results have been more positive of late, we know we must keep them positive if we want to get away from our current league position.
“In all three meetings this season, we have competed well with Airdrie and we feel we are due a break to go our way against them.
“It is not that simple, though. Anything we take from there, we will have to earn it and we know they will be up for the game for their own reasons. We must ensure we are up for it for our reasons.”
Ryan McGeever and Adam Hutchinson are again the only two injury victims ahead of the game. Having been a late call-off with illness last week, Joe McKee could come into contention.
Supporters travelling to Lanarkshire should purchase a ticket prior to entry at the ground, as no cash turnstiles are in operation.
