Dumbarton are ready to welcome Peterhead to Strathclyde Homes Stadium on Saturday afternoon, needing to improve on a poor record between the sides. The visitors have won 3 of the 6 previous games, with the Sons winning just 2.
The previous match played between the two at Strathclyde Homes Stadium was more than three years back, in March 2006, with Peterhead inflicting a narrow 2-3 defeat upon the Sons in a Scottish Division Two match.
