Dumbarton never do things the easy way. So it felt inevitable that we would slip up away at Links Park to a Montrose side who have been in a very poor patch of form lately, allowing their promotion chances to whittle away. Fortunately, the Sons' 1-0 defeat wasn't as bad as the fate the befell those around us in the race for top spot or the play-offs. Cowdenbeath lost 3-1, East Stirling got whopped 4-0 at home, Stenhousemuir went down 2-0 and Albion Rovers 4-0. All of which means that, in spite of a defeat, DFC actually gained a slight advantage on goal difference. It's a wonderful game. Not that we can afford to cave in against Annan Athletic on 21 March - especially as I'll be there. Meanwhile, there's a trip to Cliftonhill tomorrow night, sans Andy Geggan (pictured) and Gary Wilson.
