Crunch game for Dumbarton

Today's foot-of-the table SFL Second Division clash at SHS between Dumbarton and Stenhousemuir is a big one for both sides. Sons returned from an imposed winter exile with a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Ayr United, and now urgently need points not only to get 2011 off to a better home start, but to gain a vital foothold in the four-month campaign to avoid the drop. At present Sons are two points behind Stenny at the bootom of the division, but a whole five points behind Peterhead. We hold two and one game in hand, respectively. But it is points in the bag that really count at this end. Finishing ninth would still mean survival play-offs, so winning over relegation rivals is key for Dumbarton. There will be a lot of anxious fans at the Rock this afternoon.
