DUMBARTON start a run of three away games within a week tomorrow, visiting Links Park to play high-flying Montrose.
Trips closer to home, to play Queen’s Park and Clyde, lie in wait, but first up is the tough assignment to Angus.
Boosted by a battling point against leaders Cove Rangers last week, manager Stevie Farrell is looking for his team to kick on.
But with the Gable Endies in excellent form, there is no doubt about how tough it will be to return home with a result.
The gaffer said: “There was no denying we deserved something from the game last week and I was pleased with the way we battled to take a point.
“However, that game is now done and tomorrow is another blank canvas against a Montrose side who have performed consistently well at this level for a few years now.
“They are right in the mix at the sharp end of the table and will want to consolidate in that position by beating us tomorrow.
“However, we need the points ourselves and know from earlier this season that winning there is possible.
“It is two away wins in this fixture so far this season and if we apply ourselves and battle away, we will give ourselves the best possible chance of making it three.”
Goalkeeper Kieran Wright’s fitness continues to improve and he could be in line to make his debut at Links Park.
Ryan McGeever and Kristoffer Syvertsen remain out.
If you are travelling to the game tomorrow, admission can be secured by cash at the turnstile or by purchasing a ticket in advance.
The latter option is available here. Admission is £15 for adults and £8 for concessions.
The Sonstrust Travel Section’s bus leaves Dumbarton Town Centre at 11am, with details available here.
If you can’t make it to Angus then live streaming is available here, costing £12.50.
We’ll have in-play Twitter commentary on our feed @DumbartonFC.
Steven Kirkland is tomorrow’s referee, assisted by David Dunne and Colin McAlpine.
