Daniel Church (Knock) and Joshua Bradley-Hurst (Knock) are unavailable for Dumbarton boss Jim Duffy.
Team News: Montrose
Thanks to a completely healthy group ready to go, Montrose manager Stewart Petrie doesn’t have any fitness worries whatsoever before this match.
We think that Dumbarton will do well to get anything against this Montrose outfit who we think might score at least once to gain the upper hand.
We therefore think that it’s going to be a hard-fought 0-1 win for Montrose after 90 minutes.
Should be a close one.
