Another shot at glory
Next Saturday, following a satisfying 2-0 home win against Second Division Berwick in November, Dumbarton have a pop at SPL opposition in the Scottish Cup for the second season running. Last January it was a glorious trip to Celtic Park that made our year, in spite of a 4-0 defeat. The away tie at St Mirren is unlikely to be much of a money-spinner, however, and getting any kind of result will be tough - to put it mildly. An improvement on the pre-season 3-0 defeat at SHS will be needed. But we can dream: a shock result and an away draw against one of the Old Firm would do nicely, thank you. The fourth round game against Saints at Love Street will be preceded in the morning by the Sonstrust AGM at the Rock. I can't make either, sadly. But my limbs will be crossed.
