Match Preview

Carcary missing for Sons Dumbarton take on East Fife with the only absentee from manager Alan Adamson's squad list being injured winger Derek Carcary. The Sons have not won in three games and Adamson is out to repeat the success he had in the first game after he was placed in interim charge of the club when his young side beat the Fifers 4-1. Adamson said: "It would be great to repeat that success but I also remember that they gave us a real hammering 6-0 at their place when I was assistant manager. "East Fife are on the same kind of good run that we had in February when we moved away from the foot of the table but we will be looking to end theirs before they pull away from us further." East Fife will again be without defender Stevie Campbell, midfielder Robert Sloan, striker Jim Hamilton and winger Ryan Wallace through injury as they look to make it four wins in five games. The Fifers may re-introduce Scott Durie to their starting XI with the defender now being declared fully fit. New Bayview boss John Robertson is out to improve on a record of played two and lost two against the Sons during his time in charge. He said: "They have beaten us in the last couple of games we have played them, so not only do we want to keep our run up the league going we want to put that sequence to an end as well."
