Doing the maths

Ah, today's game against Airdrie United at the Excelsior Stadium creates all kinds of mathematical possibilities for Dumbarton.They key one is that if we win and Stenhousemuir fail to pick up any points in their match, the Sons are safe in the Second Division for next season. If not, well... it depends. Gaining a point advantage or keeping the points status quo would still be positive, as it would leave our relegation rivals needing 7 or (in all probability) 9 points from the next nine, assuming Dumbarton don't pick up any more - which is a possibility, given that our run-in involves the three top teams in the league.. Whatever - this game is an important one, no doubt. My fingers are crossed.
