Dumbarton have made a great start to the season under new manager Stevie Aitken. The man who led Stranraer to the playoffs last season was nabbed when Iain Murray left for Saint Mirren.
It’s looking like a good decision after their first two championship games under his guidance saw unexpected wins against Hibs and Saint Mirren.
Since then they have lost three in a row but performed well away to Falkirk live on the telly last Friday night. They got on the scoresheet in that match, another game that saw more than two goals.
Alloa are pointless and have lost to League Two opposition twice in the cups. Three games without a goal will be worrying manager Danny Lennon who kept his time locked in the dressing room after Saturday’s 0-1 home defeat to Morton.
