Dumbarton's game against Airdrie United were confounded by reality. So here we are today, about to embark on the great journey to Second Division champions Livingston, still needing points to avoid the relegation play-offs... or others to fail. Realistically, you'd have to say that the chances of the Sons taking points away at Almondvale would have to be slim. But then again, this is Dumbarton. Expect either the unexpected or the worst in such stuations, the well-trained inner cynic tells me. So, fingers crossed and all that. At this stage, I reckon Stenhousemuir might just pull themselves out of the mire. So it is probably Alloa Athletic we are trying to bury - or at least concede to hades with a chance of reprieve. Sorry Wasps. But 'Mon Sons!
