J Lyden (45+4)

Four of the best for Prunty

Four goals from striker Bryan Prunty helped Dumbarton to a stunning 6-0 away victory at East Fife in the Irn-Bru Scottish Second Division.

Martin McBride opened the scoring for the visitors with a long-range effort before Prunty gave the away side a two-goal lead with a close-range finish after 20 minutes.

Prunty made it three when he latched on to Mark Gilhaney's through ball before James Lyden gave Alan Adamson's men a four-goal lead moments before the half-time whistle.

Ryan Wallace missed a penalty for the hosts after 70 minutes after Lyden brought down Craig Johnstone.

Prunty then completed the rout, though, scoring two goals inside the last 11 minutes. Firstly, he volleyed past Michael Brown before finishing coolly moments later.

Muir the merrier for Robbo

East Fife defender David Muir will return to contention following suspension for the home clash with Dumbarton.

Muir will be added to the squad of players that saw off Premier League side Dunfermline in the Scottish Communities Cup in midweek.

Manager John Robertson said: "It was a great result for the players and the fans in midweek, but it's back to the bread and butter stuff now and we need a win to get our league campaign firing."

Andy Cook returned from the World Student games in China earlier this week and Robertson will delay naming his side until he checks on the full-back's fitness.

Goalkeeper Mark Ridgers, David White and Scott Dalziel have been ruled out, while Stevie Campbell, Robert Ogleby and Ryan Wallace are all doubtful.

Dumbarton defender Alan Lithgow will miss out through suspension and joins the injured Ryan Borris on the sidelines.

Borris is nursing a groin strain, but manager Alan Adamson has no other new injury problems.

The Sons picked up their first point of the season last weekend against Brechin and Adamson wants his side to be more consistent.

He said: "We were well in control at Brechin and leading by two goals at half-time and then bang, bang, bang we were behind.

"The boys came back into things and got a draw, but we need to stop being such a rollercoaster.

"East Fife will be on a high after a great result against Dunfermline, but if we play like we did in the first half last week we can take something."
