Falkirk will welcome Dumbarton to Falkirk Community Stadium for a matchday 21 fixture in Scotland League One. The last meeting on 13th November 2021 ended in a Falkirk 3-0 win. Both sides have met thirty-two times in the most recent seasons. Falkirk has won 15 matches, and Dumbarton triumphed in 7. Recent outings average 2.88 goals, while both teams score 50% of the time.

Falkirk's last game in the Scotland League One against Clyde at home ended in a 1-2 loss. The Bairns had plenty of possession, but not enough quality in the final third of the pitch. Falkirk scored in the second half in the 50th minute.

Dumbarton's recent game against Airdrieonians ended in a home 0-1 loss. The Sons's strikers were frustrated by the lack of good chances.

So far, Falkirk plays better on the road than at home. They win 1.50 points per away game on average compared to 1.18 points at home. Although Falkirk is among the most solid home teams in the league, they are far from perfect. Their defence is not as good as expected with just 9% home clean sheets.

Dumbarton has picked up 3 points from the previous six league games. It is quite intriguing that they prefer playing on the road. Dumbarton has collected 1.20 points on average per away game, compared to 0.82 at home. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Dumbarton kept a clean sheet in just 10% of their visits.

It is not a surprise that the hosts stand out as a favourite to win this one. Falkirk is currently unbeaten at home in one game. Since the start of the season, they have just six home defeats.

The Sons failed to win in two consecutive away games. It will be a big surprise to turn up on Saturday and win against Falkirk. Furthermore, they are in really bad away form, having lost two consecutive games on the road.

I am confident that the hosts will prove their worth and triumph with another home victory. Falkirk wins on average 1.18 points per home game, compared to 1.20 points per away game for Dumbarton. My prediction is Falkirk to win.

Both teams struggle in defence and concede on regular occasions. Falkirk failed to keep a clean sheet in 9% of home games, while Dumbarton conceded in 10% of away games. On average, both teams score in 53% of Falkirk's home and Dumbarton's away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: Yes.
