Match Preview

Sheerin rules himself out Arbroath player-manager Paul Sheerin remains out following his recent knee operation as his side look to continue their undefeated home record against visitors Dumbarton. Striker Jordan Elfverson is a doubt with an ankle knock and Sheerin has told his players to be wary of the threat posed by the Sons. He said: "We have improved defensively over recent weeks but this game will be a real test of that. Dumbarton have very good front men and they can attack you with great pace. "They have tightened up at the back recently as well so it is unlikely to be the 4-3 thriller we won at their place. "Our home form has been good with five wins and a draw and we need to keep that going." Dumbarton have a fully-fit squad to choose from for their trip. With only one defeat in five games, the Sons are enjoying their best run of the season. Manager Alan Adamson is looking forward to squaring up against Paul Sheerin's side. He said: "We are looking a lot tighter at the back which is great, although we are still not scoring enough but I am sure that will come. "After a bit of a rollercoaster start to the season it looks like we have finally found a consistency of performance but that will be tested by Arbroath. "They are a good attacking side but we have improved since the last game when we took the lead three times and lost."

Match Report

Red Lichties claim seven-goal thriller Three goals in five first-half minutes inspired Arbroath to a 4-3 win against Dumbarton. The hosts went in front after 21 minutes when Kieran McAnespie fired home from close range before Stuart Malcolm's strike two minutes later doubled their lead. They looked to be coasting to victory when Gavin Swankie's 26th-minute free-kick found the corner. But Dumbarton came out fighting in the second half and pulled a goal back after 51 minutes through Martin McNiff's header. The comeback appeared to be well and truly on when Scott Agnew converted from Ryan Borris' pass 14 minutes later. The hosts sealed the win with 11 minutes left through striker Steven Doris, although McNiff provided a late scare when he grabbed his second goal of the game late on.
