Competition: Scottish League Two
Market: Both teams to score
Odds: 4/5 @ 888sport
Looking to climb to the top of the League Two table on Wednesday night, Dumbarton will welcome Forfar to town for what could be an enjoyable affair.
Starting with the hosts, although many might be tipping Dumbarton as a leading contender to claim an immediate League One finish this season, Stephen Farrell’s men are seeking some recent stability. While the Sons might have been last seen over the weekend claiming an action-packed 2-2 draw away at fellow promotion candidates Stirling, the ex-Stranraer boss has seen his side win just a pair of their last six appearances. Putting in a nightmare display on March 25th as they were hit with a remarkable 5-1 drumming at home against Albion Rovers, Dumbarton will be desperate to lay down a League Two marker on Wednesday night. Knowing that victory here would see them leapfrog Stirling and move to the top of the table, Farrell’s side will be hoping to also find some defensive resolve. It should be noted, the Whites have recorded just one clean sheet from their previous four showdowns on home soil.
As for the visitors, while Forfar might still be dreaming of the chance to mount a late top-four charge, Ray McKinnon’s men are in the midst of an extended rut. Last seen over the weekend playing out a 1-1 draw away at Stenhousemuir, the Angus-based outfit have claimed just a single victory from any of their last seven League Two appearances – a run that stems all the way back to February 4th. Almost finding themselves sat in fourth-tier limbo, the former Queen’s Park boss will have a headache over his side’s rather glaring struggles at the back. On a run that is highlighted by an action-packed 3-2 defeat at the hands of East Fife earlier in the month, Wednesday’s guests have claimed just a single clean sheet from their last eight attempts. However, claiming a 2-1 win when they welcomed Dumbarton to Station Park back on January 14th, we are expecting another enjoyable affair here.
Bet: Both teams to score at Dumbarton vs Forfar 4/5 for Wednesday’s Scottish League Two matchup @ 888sport
