Match Preview

Stevenson set for Airdrie return Airdrie include the returning Jamie Stevenson in their squad for the visit of Dumbarton after the midfielder agreed a deal to come back to the club on Thursday. Injuries rule out full-back Graeme Goodhall, midfielder Sean Lynch and winger Alastair Woodburn - with Diamonds manager Jimmy Boyle out to build on the positive mood created by last weekend's 5-0 win over Stirling Albion in the Scottish Communities League Cup. Boyle said: "Stirling may have gone down to nine players but teams have struggled in those circumstances in the past so we were delighted with the win and go into the game with Dumbarton in confident mood. "They were tricky opponents for us all last season so we need to play well to get our league season up and running." Dumbarton hope to include new signing David Winters in their ranks for the clash after he returned to Scotland following a spell in Vietnam. Winters, 28, has been training at Falkirk and will start if all the necessary paperwork is completed, and he will be needed as the Sons have three players suspended and a further three facing fitness tests. James Creaney, Martin McBride and Bryan Prunty are all serving bans while Martin McNiff, Ryan Borris and Pat Walker are struggling with injuries. Dumbarton boss Alan Adamson said: "David had a short spell here about 18 months ago and showed what a quality player he is. I am looking forward to seeing him an action again in a tough game at Airdrie."

Match Report

Johnston double powers Airdrie Phillip Johnston's double helped Airdrie to a 3-0 win in their Second Division opener against Dumbarton. Ryan Donnelly came close for the hosts in the opening minute before Johnston opened the scoring. Fraser Keast teed up a cross for his midfield partner to drill home from 12 yards with just five minutes played. The lead was doubled soon after by Donnelly, who powered in a rebound after Derek Holmes had headed against the post. Scott Agnew almost gave the Sons a route back into the match but his 30-yard effort thundered against the woodwork. Stephen Grindlay made a succession of saves before being beaten again midway through the second half. Keast was again the provider for Johnston as the midfielder struck a shot into the roof of the net. Dumbarton nearly grabbed a late consolation as Alan Lithgow volleyed against the crossbar.
