Dumbarton manager Stevie Farrell admits that it is no surprise to him that his side are starting to find the net as they rounded off the first quarter of the cinch League Two season with a comfortable win against Clyde.

Sons put in the perfect away performance at the ZLX Stadium on Saturday as goals from Ryan Wallace, Tony Wallace, Michael Ruth and James Hilton secured a 4-0 victory on the road.

The Castle Road side have returned to winning ways in the last couple of weeks after back-to-back losses in the league against Elgin City and Peterhead but seem to have found their finishing touch in front of goal.

It’s seven goals in the last two games for the Sons and Farrell is delighted to see the goals spread out amongst the team.

Speaking to the Reporter, he said: “I don’t think our performances have changed much in the last few weeks, they have always been good, we’ve just started taking the chances we are creating.

“When you do that it creates momentum and belief and you’re going into games knowing that you are going to score.

“We played some really good stuff on Saturday and were patient in our build-up and created an overload in certain areas which is what we worked on during the week.

“When you’re 2-0 up at half-time you expect a reaction but we managed that part of the game really well and as the half went on we just looked more and more comfortable that we were going to add to our tally and that’s what we did.

“We’ve got goals in our team and we knew that when we were recruiting.

“We’ll always stay calm even when we’re not finding the net because when you have Ryan Wallace’s and Michael Ruth’s you know it’s going to come for you.

“We’re not relying on one individual to score all the goals, they are coming from all over park in the offensive area.”

Ruth has now scored three in his last three last starts for the club whilst Ryan Wallace is relishing playing in a number 10 role just behind the striker, and Faz believes that supporters are now starting to see the best of the two front men.

He explained: “We had to be careful with Michael and Ryan because Michael was coming back from an injury and we rushed him back from it too soon earlier in the season so it was about being careful this time around and Ryan had gone away on his honeymoon and we had to get his numbers back up.

“We’re working with the physios and the sport scientist and the two of them are in good shape and in a good place so hopefully they can continue to kick on.”
