Well, I exaggerate somewhat. But it would certainly be good if Dumbarton could get off to winning ways when they cross the border to take on Berwick Rangers this afternoon, following two lacklustre draws so far in their 2008-9 Third Division campaign. Andy Geggan, Mark Canning and Michael Moore are all out, but hopefuly the recent defensive lapses will have been addressed in training and Paul Keegan won't be left to fend for himself up front. As I'm in the West Midlands at the moment, this is a game I would have considered heading for. But unfortunately my schedule doesn't allow it.
Meanwhile, Exeter City have a tough home assignment against Shrewsbury Town - their first game in the League at St James' Park for five years, following promotion from the Conference.
