MATCH PREVIEW – DUMBARTON

After our narrow derby defeat from Dunfermline last Saturday we now find ourselves back in ninth place in the Irn Bru First Division equal on points with the Pars but with an inferior goal difference.
On Saturday we welcome Dumbarton to Central Park for our final home league game of the season.
The Sons arrive at Central Park knowing a point will be enough to ensure their First Division place for next season.
So far this season results have been even between the sides with each winning away from home while the last encounter saw a draw.
Back in August we visited the Bet Butler Stadium and came away with a 3-0 win thanks to goals from Lewis Coult, Greg Stewart and Marc McKenzie from the penalty spot.
However in early November a first half goal from Mark Gilhaney gave Dumbarton their first league win of the season.
Our second visit to Dumbarton early last month saw a 2-2 draw, Jamie Stevenson gave us an early lead but goals from Bryan Prunty and Scott Agnew swung the game in the Sons favour before Craig Moore popped up with a last minute equaliser.
It has really been a story of two halves for the Sons this season under Play Off winning manager Alan Adamson only two points were picked up before their last visit to Central Park when assistant manager Jack Ross was in charge of the side.
The arrival of former Hibernian captain Ian Murray in December has produced a remarkable turn -around in fortunes with the Sons picking up 34 points since he became manager.
COWDEN FORM
April has produced a mixed bag of results for Colin Cameron’s side with a win, a draw and two defeats.
In our last home game we drew 2-2 with Livingston and since then we have played the two Fife derbies with a narrow win over Raith Rovers and last week’s narrow defeat at Dunfermline.
Our home league record so far this season is
Played 17, Won 4, Drawn 8, Lost 5, Goals For 28, Goals Against 31, Points 20.
DUMBARTON FORM
Only Morton have won more away games in the First Division this season. The Sons have won eight times on the road so far this season with champions Partick Thistle being the only side that they have failed to beat on their travels.
In their last two games the Sons have beaten Falkirk 3-1 away from home and relegated Airdrie United 4-1 at the Bet Butler Stadium last Saturday.
Dumbarton’s away league record this season is
Played 17, Won 8, Drawn 1, Lost 8, Goals For 29, Goals Against 41, Points 25.
PLAYER TO WATCH
Big Jim Lister is having his best ever season in the SFL and has bagged 14 goals so far this season with 11 of them coming in the First Division.
