History of the Brechin City v Dumbarton fixture

Brechin City prepare to entertain Dumbarton at Glebe Park on Saturday afternoon, needing to improve on a poor record between the sides. The visitors have won 21 of the 53 previous games, with the The City winning just 20.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Glebe Park was just last season, in May 2003, where the two sides shared the spoils courtesy of a 1-1 final scoreline in a Scottish Division Two match.
