History of the Forfar Athletic v Dumbarton fixture

Dumbarton face a trip to Forfar Athletic at Station Park on Tuesday evening, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Sons will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them ending up on the losing side in more than half of the games played between the two.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was earlier this season, where the two teams cancelled each other out in an enthralling 2 - 2 draw in a Scottish Division Three match.
