DUMBARTON face a vital game in the battle to retain their League One place when they visit bottom side East Fife tomorrow.
After three defeats in a row, Sons have to rediscover the habit of picking up points to get away from the dangerous end of the table.
With the Fifers six points behind, and eight games left to play, there is no masking what tomorrow’s game means to the two clubs.
Manager Stevie Farrell is certainly looking for things to be a bit more enjoyable tomorrow, against a side Dumbarton have beaten twice already this season.
He said: “Last Saturday at home to Queen’s Park was a game where we never got going and it goes without saying we must do better tomorrow.
“The league table speaks for itself about how important tomorrow’s game is, but they are all important games in this division.
“We might have picked up six points against East Fife already this season but tomorrow is another game and there is no doubt they will be up for it.
“We must match them in that respect, and every other, if we are to get the result that would make the league table look better come Saturday evening.”
Ryan McGeever, Kristoffer Syvertsen and Joshua Oyinsan are all out injured tomorrow while Ross MacLean completes his two-game suspension.
However, midfielder Paul Paton has finished his ban after being dismissed at Peterhead and returns to the squad.
Supporters travelling to Fife are reminded that tickets must be bought in advance of the game. There are no cash turnstiles.
If you are unable to make the trip, live streaming is available.
We’ll also have in-play Twitter commentary on our feed @DumbartonFC as the game goes on.
Calum Scott is the referee for tomorrow’s game, and will have assistance from John McCrossan and Colin Drummond.
