Dumbarton defender Aron Lynas insists the Sons squad are just taking things one game at a time as they approach the midway point of the season.

Sons will top League Two at Christmas, regardless of outcomes this Saturday, after the conditions were the winner at the weekend with most games across the country falling victim to the weather.

The Castle Road side were due to host Stenhousemuir, but following an inspection on Saturday morning,  the game was called off due to a waterlogged pitch after last week’s snow and frost melted, leaving the park covered in puddles.

Dumbarton weren’t in action last weekend either as the SPFL Trust Trophy took centre stage, meaning that Stevie Farrell’s men go into  their Christmas Eve match against East Fife - taking place the day after Sons’ 150th birthday - without any fresh injury concerns.

Dumbarton are currently seven games unbeaten and Lynas, who arrived in the summer after leaving Albion Rovers, admits when you’re on that kind of form all you want to do is keep playing.

Speaking to the Reporter, he said: “I’m loving my time here. I feel like I’ve fitted in really well. 

“The training is good and the boys and the coaching staff are great.

“It’s frustrating having the week off last week and then being off on Saturday but we’ve just got to keep or fingers crossed that this weekend is on.

“We know where we are but we’re not getting ahead of ourselves, there’s still a long way to go this season.

“We’ve got to take each week as it comes and if we stick to what we’ve been doing we’re really hoping it’s going to be a successful one.

“It makes it a bit more special to be doing it in the 150th year and if we could do it then it would really mean a lot.”

Sons’ success this season has been down to keeping things tight defensively and hitting teams on the counter attack when the opportunity arises, and Lynas believes that whoever is picked for the starting eleven knows exactly what to do.

He explained: “Everybody knows their role in the team, we know what we have to do and how we play. Teams come here and get frustrated with us.

“We look really dangerous going forward, we’re maybe not scoring as much as we want but we’re still getting the goals and hopefully we can add a few more.

“We’ve set out what we want to do and we want to keep this run going.

“It shows the mentality of the squad that whoever is on the bench can still step in and give a hundred percent if there’s injuries or suspensions so it’s really good what we have here.”

Lynas scored his first goal for the club in the 4-0 win at Elgin last month and having only netted once in his career prior to the strike, joked that he wasn’t sure how to celebrate.

He said: “As you can probably tell from my record it’s something I don’t normally do week in week out.

“To get my first goal for the club was really special and hopefully I can add a few more. 

“I was surprised myself with the goal, I didn’t really know what to do after it!”
