As a partial excuse for this the fact that they are hurt for many absences every match and today will be the same.
Barr ( def.3, key del last season), regular keeper Adam, Cammy Ballantyne ( def.3) remain all out and today three new absences, key def. Dyer (8), key midf. Hutton ( 7+1) and striker Aitchison ( 4) are also out, while Carswell ( key midf. 5+1/23+1 last season) will make fitness tests.
With only 21 years old keeper McGowan available and practically without experience, that suffered five goals at his debut, arrived on emergency loan 20 years old keeper Mutch from Falkirk. He played five matches in Championship last season, but arrived just yesterday, so is questionable its gel with the team and if he will be starter today.
On the other front, Stranraer with only one point more but with 2-1-1 5/3 at home ( they loose only against third on table East Fife and have the best home defense with Raith). Team news say that only Lamont ( midf.1+2) is out, but respect last match hosts recover usually bench players Ashmore ( midf. sub) and Elliot ( att.1+3).
Hosts are not so strong upfront ( only seven goals scored in total, but Dumbarton already suffered 15g and with new absences, situation at the back should be worsened, Stranraer should be able at least to not loose second consecutive home match here.
