Dumbarton win

The fixture has traditionally favoured Dumbarton, who have registered three consecutive victories. However, both teams are vastly different compared to their last meeting in 2012. Armed with home advantage and better form during the pre-season friendly games, Dumbarton are likely to be much stronger than the visitors.

Total goals under 2.5

The two clubs might have produced a string of high scoring games in the past, but there are a lot of changes to the squad for the upcoming campaign. Most of the strengthening done by Dumbarton has been in the central midfield and defensive positions.

Both teams to score – no

Stirling Albion will relish the opportunity to play on the counter. The team has had a disappointing run of games in the pre-season friendly matches. Meanwhile, Dumbarton have been steadily growing in confidence especially with their defensive performances. Since Stevie Farrell has largely strengthened the defence in the summer, Dumbarton are likely to get a clean sheet.

Dumbarton vs Stirling Albion: Match Preview and Team News

Dumbarton

Dumbarton have gone for a string of free transfers with a couple of players like Brett Long and Ally Love dropping down a division to play for the team. Dumbarton manager Stevie Farrell saw the team drop down a division and there is a lot of pressure on the 49-year-old to get the club back to League One.

Stirling Albion

Stirling Albion have been unable to get any momentum in recent years. After the departure of Kevin Rutkiewicz, manager Darren Young saw his team finish seventh in the table last season. So far in the summer, majority of the transfer activity from the club has been focused on experienced players. Ross Davidson will be unavailable due to a foot injury.
