Keeping up the momentum

After a long day, night and early morning, my brain won't quite extend to any sensible thoughts on today's impending football activities. So over to Alan Findlay: Forfar Athletic await Dumbarton's on-form team tomorrow with Sons looking to break a 119-year old record with a fifth straight away win. The Loons have been a victim of the winter weather having only played 19 games, meaning that there are a lot of points up for grabs. But Dumbarton's recent form has been excellent and a victory at Station Park will see history books re-written [more than five consecutive away wins], a fact that gaffer Alan Adamson is keen to use as motivation.

He says: "Our lads are keen to keep up the momentum and having a wee goal to go for will add a further incentive. We've been playing well and Tuesday night's win was pleasing, especially as we replicated our away form at the Strathclyde Homes Stadium. But tomorrow at Station Park I expect things to be tough and with Forfar having so many games in hand, it's important that we take something from the game. They lost 2-0 last week against Airdrie United but had a five game unbeaten run prior to that including a win against us in January. We will need to be on our toes."
