History of the Stirling Albion v Dumbarton fixture

Dumbarton pack their bags to visit Stirling Albion at Forthbank Stadium on Saturday evening, hoping to improve upon an average previous return from this fixture. Of the 33 games played, Sons have recorded 7 wins, and Stirling Alb. have come away with 15 victories.

The previous match played between the two at Forthbank Stadium was within the last three years, in January 2002, the Binos carving out a narrow 2 - 1 victory in a Scottish Division Three match.

Recent respective form guides

Stirling Albion have only collected 1 win and 3 draws from the last six home games played. While Binos have scored 7, a worringly large 10 have been leaked at the other end.

Dumbarton's away form is none too clever either, winning and losing 3 each of the last six games. The Sons's have scored 8 goals in these games, but conceded an alarming 10.

Stirling Alb. are just outside the promotion places, in 3rd, having taken 26 points from 16 games. Dumbarton see themselves just below half way in the Bells Scottish Division Two, showing a record of 19 points from their 15 games played so far,
