Gallag her has Sons in sights


Ian Murray’s side made it 2-1 through Dylan Easton in the 90th minute before Dumbarton dramatical­ly levelled four minutes later. If there wasn’t enough action already, Salim Kouider-aissa won the game on 96 minutes.

Gallagher said: “since I’ve been away from Dumbarton, I’ve had a good record against them. So I am hopeful that I can keep the foot down and grab a couple more goals before the end of 2021.

“In terms of my output, I’d like between eight and ten goals for each half of the term. That’s my personal aim and this is always a good fixture.

“I know the last match was a mental game so I think they will be gunning for us a wee bit. There were red cards and high emotions. So I’m sure they will be aiming to put us in the place for nicking points off them.”

The striker has been in good form of late, with two goals and two assists in five games prior to tonight’s [Wednesday’s] match with Queen’s Park.

His goal against Alloa made it six strikes for the season, a neat first touch after a long ball from Rhys Mccabe providing an opening for a shot, which he grasped with both hands.

He added: “i think with the style of play we have, when we do play well, it is difficult for teams to manage it. It was a really good performanc­e from us.

“It was nice to get a goal that wasn’t a tap-in from a yard out for a change!

“We know we are capable of mixing it up when we need to so Rhys picked me out well.

“My touch was good and took it wide and away from the goalkeeper, I was just happy to hit the target! It was a good day all around.”
