Joshua Bradley-Hurst (Knock) and Daniel Church (Knock) will not be taking part for Dumbarton boss Jim Duffy.
Team News: Peterhead
Peterhead boss Jim McInally has multiple availability issues to deal with. Gary Fraser (Knee Injury) and Ryan Conroy (Ankle Injury) are those who can’t be considered.
We’re thinking that Peterhead will likely create enough chances to find the back of the net against this Dumbarton side, however that may not be enough to avoid a loss.
Our selection here is for a close game with a 2-1 victory for Dumbarton by the conclusion of the game. Let’s just see how this one goes.
