Dumbarton 3 - 0 East Fife

Saturday 12th November 2011
S Agnew (34)
M Gilhaney (60)
A Lithgow (68)

Sons rise above Fife

Dumbarton leapfrogged East Fife in the table as they completed an emphatic double over East Fife with a 3-0 victory.

Though there was never likely to be a repeat of the 6-0 thrashing in August, Dumbarton were always in control and Scott Agnew curled in a peach of a free-kick to open the scoring after half an hour.

Bryan Prunty, who scored four in the reverse fixture, set up fellow striker Mark Gilhaney to double the home side's lead on the hour mark.

Agnew then teed up Alan Lithgow to slot past Michael Brown in the East Fife goal from inside the box as the home side went into cruise control with 20 minutes left.

Robert Linn twice came close for the visitors late on but nothing would deny Dumbarton the most routine of victories.

Nicholl sits it out

Dumbarton have a full-strength squad to pick from for their home game against East Fife with the exception of suspended midfielder Kevin Nicoll.

Alan Adamson's side face an East Fife outfit gunning for revenge after losing 6-0 in the two sides' last meeting.

Adamson, still smarting his own side's 4-3 defeat at Arbroath last week, said: "I don't usually complain about results, but the players and I are still upset about that one and will be looking to take it out on East Fife.

"They will also be looking to make up for a defeat last Saturday and I'm sure the result in the last meeting between us will be featuring in John Robertson's team-talk, so we need to be ready."

East Fife will be without Mark Ridgers and striker Robert Ogleby.

Goalkeeper Ridgers and striker Ogleby are away on international duty with Scotland Under-21s and Wales Under-21s respectively.

The Fifers' squad is depleted further as Matthew Park, Lloyd Young and Scott Dalziel have been ruled out through injury, while manager John Robertson has reported that four first-team members are suffering from the early stages of a flu bug.

Robertson said: "It will be a case of seeing who is there at Dumbarton and picking the side, which is not ideal.

"They beat us 6-0 the last time and deserved their win, but if they expect that again they will be disappointed as things have moved on from there."
