Recent respective form guides

Dumbarton's home form is poor, winning just 2 of the last six, and losing the other 4. While Sons have scored 10, a worringly large 14 have been leaked at the other end.

Falkirk's away form is none too clever either, coming away with three points on 3 occasions, but drawing 1 and losing 2. The Bairns's have scored 9 goals in these games, but conceded an alarming 10.

Dumbarton are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 23 points from 22 matches.

Falkirk's 33 points from 24 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 5th position.
