No-one can say that they haven't taken advantage of the situation, however. Right now the Blues are 13 points in front of DFC, and three points clear of early pacesetters Stirling Albion. A win for Sons this afternoon would be a boost in a number of ways. We lost 3-0 at home to Cowden in September and then 2-1 on the road in November, so this is an opportunity to redress the balance, to get 2010 off to a good start, and also to begin making a bid for the top half of the table. Fingers crossed. Both for the game going ahead and for the result.
Oh yes, there will be a 12-page wrap-around programme for this fixture, which includes the double Christmas issue for the games against Alloa and Stenhousemuir (both postponed). I have a column in the latter, ironically entitled Seeking a bit of festive cheer, but not in the abbreviated Cowden one. There's also a 'Fan of the Week' feature, which I'll pop up here on Sunday, assuming everything goes to plan.
