Match Preview

Sons aim to upset the odds Dumbarton will again be without midfield duo Kevin Nicoll and Martin McNiff when they entertain second-placed Arbroath Nicoll (groin) and McNiff (foot) miss out as the Sons finally get back to action after more than three weeks of being idle due to the weather, with manager Alan Adamson looking forward to finally seeing on-loan recruit Ally Graham in action. Adamson said: "It has been a frustrating period for everyone but hopefully we can get going again against Arbroath. "We have lost 4-3 both times against them this season in crazy games and after having a soft penalty awarded against us in one and a man sent off for very little in the other, we feel we are due a bit of luck." Arbroath hope influential midfielder Josh Falkingham will return after a one-game injury-enforced absence. Striker Jordan Elfverson is also facing a late fitness test due to a back injury as the Gayfield men start playing catch-up with leaders Cowdenbeath. Manager Paul Sheerin said: "With our game against Stirling being abandoned on Boxing Day we lost the opportunity to stick together with Cowdenbeath so we know that we have to win this game to remain firmly on their tails. "There have been 14 goals in the two games between ourselves and Dumbarton this season as we both have really good players going forward but could do with being tighter at the back. "We will make a final decision on whether Josh can feature after he has trained over the weekend."

Match Report

Walker leaves it late Dumbarton gained revenge on Arbroath for two defeats earlier in the season with a late Patrick Walker strike securing a 3-2 win. The hosts went ahead after 20 minutes, Bryan Prunty getting on the end of Mark Lemont's cross from the left to head in his ninth goal of the season. Arbroath levelled soon after through their top scorer Steven Doris, who powered home a Brian Kerr through ball to notch his 10th of the campaign. Gavin Swankie played in Josh Falkingham to slot the Smokies ahead before the break. Stephen Grindlay produced a great reaction save to deny Liam Caddis from extending Arbroath's lead after the interval and Alan Lithgow went down the other end to level for Dumbarton and set up a nervous finale. And deep into stoppage time, substitute Walker drilled in Anthony Wallace's delivery to snatch Dumbarton's first win in five matches right at the death.
