MATCH PREVIEW – DUMBARTON

After the excitement of our William Hill Scottish Cup win over Vale of Leithen its back to Irn Bru First Division action on Saturday as we welcome Dumbarton to Central Park with a 3 p.m. kick off.

The Sons are bottom of the league with two points from their opening ten games but will be looking to build upon last Saturday’s 4-1 Scottish Cup win over East Stirlingshire so we will have to be at our best to ensure all three points.

MATCH SPONSOR

The Steven family Margaret and William are our Match Sponsors for the big game on Saturday and we thank them for their sponsorship.

MATCH BALL SPONSOR

In Memory of Ian Millar and James McKenzie.

Ian Millar who died last year was aged 79 and was a Cowdenbeath supporter since boyhood - he was one of the people who built the wall at the back of the terracing and was given an honorary membership of the old Supporters Club. Ian was always interested in the Club and the results even when ill health prohibited him from attending the matches. Ian's widow, Elizabeth, is also a Cowdenbeath fan and remembers coming to the games as a youngster with her father.

Ian also had a further connection in that James McKenzie a Cowden player of yesteryear was a relative. Jim McKenzie too is no longer with us. Jim came from Lumphinnans and played for local juvenile side Kirkford United. He then played for Cowden between 1948 and 1951.

COWDEN FORM

Last Saturday saw us score eight goals in a first team game for the first time in almost 49 years and saw our first win since we beat East Stirlingshire in the Ramsdens Cup Quarter Final.

The strike force of Greg Stewart and Lewis Coult bagged five goals between them and hopefully they will continue their fine form in front of goal.

DUMBARTON FORM

The Sons poor start to the First Division campaign saw manager Alan Adamson leave the club recently and he has been replaced in an interim basis by his assistant Jack Ross.

Ross has been in charge for the last two games which saw a 4-3 home defeat from Airdrie United after the Sons were leading 3-2 going into the closing minutes of the game and last week’s cup win over the Shire which also took place at the Bet Butler Stadium.

PLAYERS TO WATCH

Dumbarton’s top scorers Jim Lister and Bryan Prunty were both on target in last week’s Scottish Cup game.

Between them they have scored most of the Sons nine league goals so far. Summer signing from Brechin City Lister has bagged four league goals so far with a further three in the cup competition’s.

Prunty has been on target five times this season with three of his goals coming in First Division games.

MATCH OFFICIALS

Taking charge of the match is Mike Tumilty who will be assisted by Joseph Lawson and Duncan Williams.
