Dumbarton prepare to entertain Elgin City at Strathclyde Homes Stadium on Saturday afternoon, aiming to preserve their record of never having lost at home to the visitors. The majority of those games have been won by the Sons.
The most recent encounter between these two sides at Strathclyde Homes Stadium was less than a year ago, in March 2007, the Sons carving out a narrow 1-0 victory in a Scottish Division Three match.
