IRN-BRU FIRST DIVISION:
AIRDRIE v DUMBARTON
Saturday, New Broomfield, 3pm
Airdrie earned their first victory in 12 games at Dunfermline Athletic last weekend and face Dumbarton looking for back to back league wins for only the second time this season. They will climb out of the relegation zone with a draw and a defeat for Cowdenbeath at home to the Pars.
The Sons, under new boss Ian Murray, have taken nine points from a possible 12 and could send the Diamonds bottom of the table with a fourth win in five games at the stadium.
Airdrie team news:
The Diamonds look set to give the players that won in Fife another opportunity. Kenny Arthur will start in goal unless another loan move for St Mirren keeper Grant Adam is successful.
Defender Grant Evans is back from suspension and midfielder Nathan Blockley returns after a thigh problem but David Lilley, Sean Lynch, Jack Boyle, Alan Cook and Gavin Griffin are all out.
October 27, 2012: Dumbarton 3 Airdrie 4.
A thrilling match at The Rock saw Bryan Prunty and Jim Lister put the Sons in control. Airdrie levelled thanks to Kieron Stallard and Josh Watt before Steven McDougall made it 3-2. However, Ross Forsyth's own goal and a Blockley effort won the points for the Diamonds.
