Maitland boasts wealth of players for Sons clash
Alloa manager Allan Maitland is in the happy position of having over 20 players available to pick from for the visit of Dumbarton.
Fit-again goalkeeper Jamie Ewings is one of the players added to Maitland's selection thoughts, along with midfielder Jason Thomson and the attacking threat of Dougie Wilson and Andy Scott.
Maitland, however, is not expected to make many changes after seeing his side defeat Ayr 4-1 last Saturday.
Brown Ferguson and Stuart Noble remain out through injury.
Maitland said: "The 17 players in last weekend's squad are all fit and available. We will need to play well again as Dumbarton were a bit of a bogey side for us last season and Jim Chapman always has his teams really well organised."
Dumbarton have been boosted by a sooner than expected return from injury for goalkeeper Stephen Grindlay.
The stopper has been added to the Sons' squad to face to Alloa although he may have to settle for a place on the bench.
Former Wasp Mark Gilhaney is expected to be absent with a groin strain along with the suspended Paul Nugent and injured striker Jon McShane.
After winning for the first time last weekend, manager Jim Chapman is looking for his side to take full points from a side they have defeated three times in a row.
He said: "We are up against a side who we know well and who know us well so it will be a really tight contest but one we know we can win."
No goals at the Rec
Alloa and Dumbarton shared the points as they played out a 0-0 stalemate at the Recreation Park.
Chances were few and far between as neither side were able to break the deadlock in a niggly game littered with fouls.
The home side had the best scoring chance in the game, but David Gormley's shot from six-yards came crashing back off the post.
Dumbarton could have gone ahead early on, but Stirling Smith's left-footed volley was easily saved by Alloa goalkeeper Steven Robertson.
And Robertson made another smart save from Tony Wallace's rasping long-range drive.
But the away side were pleased with a point and a clean sheet, having conceded 11 goals in their previous three away games.
