Dumbarton will be wanting a better result here following a 5-0 League One losing effort in their last game against Peterhead.
Ryan Conroy (4'), Hamish Ritchie (48'), Jason Brown (53'), Josh Mulligan (80') and Scott Brown (82') scored for Peterhead.
It’s been all too rare in recent times that Dumbarton have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. In fact, Dumbarton have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 matches, shipping 11 goals during that time. We will just have to see whether or not that trend can be continued on in this game.
Leading up to this clash, Dumbarton:
- haven't won against Queen's Park in their last 6 league games.
- are undefeated in their previous 2 home league matches.
Following on from being defeated in their last game at the hands of Kilmarnock in Challenge Cup action, Queen's Park and their fans will hope to get a better result this time.
Queen's Park have been dangerous up front in the lead-up to this encounter, having scored 8 goals in their last 6 matches. While their manager Laurie Ellis will no doubt take that as a positive sign, Queen's Park can also improve defensively after being scored against in 5 of those same games.
Analysis of their past results shows that Queen's Park:
- are undefeated by Dumbarton in games played away from home for the previous 3 league matches.
- are undefeated in their previous 4 league matches away from home.

Owing to a fully injury-free group available to select from, the Queen's Park boss Laurie Ellis does not have any fitness concerns whatsoever ahead of this clash.
We believe that Dumbarton will need to push hard to see themselves scoring against this Queen's Park outfit who we think will likely just have the edge.
We therefore fancy a very competitive game with a 0-1 winning margin for Queen's Park when all is said and done.
