Dumbarton head into this match coming off the back of a 1-1 League One drawn game against Falkirk. The only player to score from Dumbarton was Rabin Omar (68'). Anton Dowds (74') scored for Falkirk. A recurring theme in recent Dumbarton games is seeing a zero in the scoreline.
From their previous sextet of matches leading up to this one, in 5 of them a bet on both teams scoring would have lost. That pattern won’t necessarily be carried forward into this game, though.
Their prior results show that Dumbarton haven't lost in the league to Airdrie United in their last 2 games and are without a home win in the past 2 league matches. Since a loss in their previous game against Cove Rangers in League One competition, Airdrie United will be hoping to turn things around here. Jamie Masson (65', 71') scored for Cove Rangers.
The stats don’t lie, and Airdrie United have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, with opponents netting 10 goals in total. In defence, The Diamonds certainly have room for improvement.
A look at their previous results shows us that Airdrie United remain undefeated by Dumbarton when they've played them away from home in the last 4 matches in the league. Away fans have certainly had plenty to cheer about and have not won away from home in their last 2 league games.
Checking on their prior head-to-head clashes dating back to 02/02/2019 shows that Dumbarton have won 1 of these and Airdrie United 2, with the tally of draws being 3.
A combined total of 17 goals were produced between them during those clashes, with 8 for The Sons and 9 netted by The Diamonds . The previous league fixture between these clubs was League One match day 11 on 31/10/2020 when it finished Airdrie United 0-2 Dumbarton.
Daniel Church (Knock), Joshua Bradley-Hurst (Knock) and Rico Quitongo (Knock) aren’t available for Dumbarton boss Jim Duffy. Thanks to a fully injury-free group available to select from, Airdrie United boss Ian Murray doesn’t have any fitness concerns whatsoever ahead of this game.
Dumbarton will need to push hard to see themselves scoring against this Airdrie United lineup who will likely manage to score & go ahead.
