Dumbarton will be looking to improve on their last outing here following the 1-0 League One loss in their previous game against Peterhead.
Ben Armour (5') scored for Peterhead.
Dumbarton have really struggled up front in more recent games. Their goals record stands at just 4 vs opposing sides during the course of their previous 6 fixtures. In those games, The Sons have also seen the tally of goals against them total 9. Such a pattern isn’t assured to be carried forward here, of course.
Their previous form shows that Dumbarton:
- have not won against Falkirk in their last 9 league games.
- are unbeaten in their last 6 league matches at home.
Falkirk head into the match after a 1-0 League One win as they beat Cove Rangers in their last fixture.
The only scorer from Falkirk was Callumn Morrison (49').
A sequence of reliable displays by the Falkirk defenders has resulted in their ‘goals against’ tally standing at 4 from their last 6 clashes combined. In that time, the number of goals that they have scored themselves is 13.
Taking a look at their past results, Falkirk:
- have not been beaten by Dumbarton when having played them away from home in the previous 4 league matches. An impressive run.
- are undefeated in their previous 3 league matches away from home.
Head to head
A review of their past head to head meetings stretching back to 24/02/2018 tells us that these fixtures have not been good ones for Dumbarton. They’ve not been able to come away with any wins at all while Falkirk have managed to find a way, running out winners in 67% of those match-ups.
There were also plenty of goals scored in those games, 22 overall at an average of 3.67 goals per meeting.
Team News: Dumbarton
Regarding absentees, there’s just the lone fitness concern for the Dumbarton manager Jim Duffy to contend with thanks to an otherwise robust group of players. Chris Smith (Groin Injury) is sidelined.
Team News: Falkirk
Due to a fully healthy group available to select from, Falkirk boss David McCracken doesn’t have any fitness worries to speak of coming into this game.
Our feeling is that Dumbarton are certainly able to score a goal against this Falkirk team, however a single goal probably shouldn’t be enough to avoid defeat.
We’re therefore tipping a narrow 1-2 advantage for Falkirk after the 90.
