Match Preview

Graham concern for Sons Striker Ally Graham is an injury doubt for the visit of leaders Cowdenbeath as third-placed Dumbarton look to extend their unbeaten run to 11 games. Fellow forward Mark Gilhaney could return after missing out on the 2-2 draw at Brechin at the weekend through illness with manager Alan Adamson reckoning this game will tell him more than the previous 10. Adamson explained: "Cowdenbeath beat us 4-0 here in September and we were chasing them all over the place that afternoon. We went to Central Park determined to do better but that game was ruined by the wind so we could not learn anything that day. "How we play in this game will be a measure of how much improvement we have made throughout the season." Cowdenbeath have the chance to open up a four-point lead at the top of the Second Division by seeing off in-form hosts Dumbarton. But player-manager Colin Cameron will again miss out due to a knee problem. The former Scotland international is joined on the sidelines by David Cowan and Thomas O'Brien with Dene Brett an injury doubt. Cameron said: "It is an opportunity to open up a bigger lead but it will not be an easy task. "Dumbarton are on a great run and they will be viewing this as an opportunity to get closer to Arbroath and ourselves as opposed to just helping secure a play-off spot. "As always it is more important what we do as opposed to the opposition."

Match Report

Blue Brazil march on League leaders Cowdenbeath extended their lead at the top with a 2-0 win over play-off hopefuls Dumbarton. The visitors got off to a flying start when Joseph Mbu rose highest to head home Marc McKenzie's corner in the third minute. Lewis Coult came close to a second on the half-hour mark but steered his header just wide of goal. Dumbarton were clearly stunned by the early goal and struggled to find any rhythm as the first half came to a close. Chances were at a premium after the break but visitors continued to frustrate the Sons McKenzie all but ensured victory 15 minutes from time with a fine strike from distance. Victory moves Alan Adamson's men four points clear of second placed Arbroath whilst Dumbarton remain in the play-off places.
