This afternoon will be a significant test for Dumbarton. A home win against fellow promotion rivals Montrose would send out a very positive message about the Sons' intentions and capabilities in that department. But the Gable Endies are looking to turn round a mini-slump and have a new manager to impress. It's going to be tough. Meanwhile, fans got some good news about our Trust representative on the Club Board this week. But there's been no official announcement, so I'll hold any further comment for the time being.
Meanwhile, I'll be watching my locals Exeter City try to wrestle some points off Barnet at St James' Park. After two defeats, they will be needed... or mid-table obscurity beckons. The media have been focusing on missed penalties, but I think the Grecians have a bigger problem up front: lack of penetration and consistency. The changes are being rung again today. But the pattern remains uneven. It's still been a good season though, and it can still have a happy ending.
