Dumbarton Football Club - Sons of the Rock 1872

TOUGH TEST FOR DUMBARTON

Friday 17th September 2021

DUMBARTON make the trip to Falkirk tomorrow aiming to make it three victories in a row and kick on from last week's thrilling victory.

With the 5-0 win over East Fife now firmly in the history books, it is a blank sheet for the visit to the Falkirk Stadium.

The visit to the Bairns will be difficult, but it will be a confident Sons side that makes the trip off the back of two recent victories.

Manager Stevie Farrell is looking for his side to acquit themselves as well as they have done of late, and for the unbeaten run to continue.

The gaffer said: "The scoreline said it all about what a pleasing victory we registered last week, and there's been a real buzz among the boys in training this week.

"However, that is now in the past, and we must knuckle down to what will be a very difficult game away to Falkirk tomorrow.

"Falkirk are tipped to be at the sharp end of League One this season, and after a difficult run of late, they will be keen to show why they are tipped to do that.

"We have shown how well we can play as well recently, though, so we need to be brave and battle-hardened for the game, and we'll give ourselves a chance if we do so."

Evan Maley, Calum Erskine and Kristoffer Syvertsen are all definitely out tomorrow while there are doubts over Paul Paton and Ross MacLean.

However, David Hopkirk (pictured) and Andy Geggan could be welcomed back into the squad.

If you are making the trip to the Falkirk Stadium tomorrow, then don't forget that you need to purchase a downloadable ticket before the game. Details are available in our previous story.

If you're not able to travel, there is live streaming available - again, we have details here.

We'll have in-play Twitter commentary on our feed @dumbartonfc and we'll have a report and reaction online as soon as possible after the final whistle.

Dan McFarlane will referee tomorrow's game, and will have assistance from Alan Mulvanny and Chris Phillips.
