History of the Dumbarton v Montrose fixture

Dumbarton prepare to entertain Montrose at Strathclyde Homes Stadium on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Sons are clearly on top, having won 31 and lost only 13 of the 55 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Strathclyde Homes Stadium was less than a year ago, in April 2008, when they played out a goalless draw in a Scottish Division Three match.
