Recent respective form guides

Dumbarton have only collected 1 win and 3 draws from the last six home games played. While Sons have scored 6, a worringly large 9 have been leaked at the other end.

Peterhead's away form is none too clever either, winning and losing 3 each of the last six games. While the The Blue Toon have hit 7 goals, 10 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Dumbarton lie just outside the playoff positions in the Irn Bru Scottish Division Two, picking up 18 points from their 14 games so far. Peterhead lie just outside the playoff positions in the Irn Bru Scottish Division Two, picking up 21 from their 14 games so far.
