Blunting the Warriors?

According to the best-informed localised betting, Stenhousemuir are narrowly favourites to pip Dumbarton at the Strathclyde Homes Stadium this afternoon. Naturally, I have a different view (and hope). But Jim Chapman is still having to contend with a whole roster of inconvenient injuries which are testing the depth of the impressive squad he has assembled over the summer. Incidentally, the weather should be fine. Wow, there's even a site that provides micro forecasting for specific grounds. Meanwhile, I'm glad to see (Glasgow Evening Times) that Fergus Tiernan wants to win playing open, attractive football. As always, the success or otherwise of this comes down to a combination of matching tactics with skill and ensuring sharpness up front - the same challenge that my locals Exeter City face this afternoon, away to Bournemouth in English Football League Two.
