Sons first goal on Saturday at Livingston was a belter. Scored by Brian Prunty it probably won’t be bettered by a Sons player this season. (At least not unless in a crucial game we score in a vital game from a kick-off just after the opposition has equalised in a move that passes the ball all over the ground before being planted in the net without an opposing player having touched it since they scored, as was the case with John McQuade’s goal against Cowdenbeath in the old Div 2 all those years ago.)
You can see Saturday’s goal on Sons TV here – Livingston A, Sat 9th Feb.
Punters on the Pie Shop, aka the website Pie and Bovril, have been claiming that LiviTV’s coverage of Brian’s effort has attracted so many hits it caused their website to crash.
Hope Sons TV can take the rush.

A poster on the Scottish football fans’ forum The Pie Shop – otherwise known as Pie and Bovril – has put up a link (which I copy here) to a new survey Supporters Direct is undertaking to ascertain fans’ views on various topics of concern/interest.
If you are at all interested in Scottish football – especially if you support a “small” club – please add your contribution to the survey. The more respondents there are the more weight Supporters Direct will have in discussions with the football authorities.

League goals for predictor:- 18.
Way-Hay! Into double figures for points.
I hope we haven’t used up all our season’s luck in two games. That’s the second home fixture in a row we’ve had opponents sent off.
From the accounts on Pie and Bovril it seems Grindlay had a good few saves. Well he always used to make some of those; it’s the bread and butter stuff and the crosses he messes up. And he still didn’t keep a clean sheet.
But we were missing Ben Gordon – not that he’s been outstanding this season.
A welcome three points though. Being in contact with those above us is always a good thing.
Next weekend is free of worry. It’s not a league game.
We’ll be able to concentrate on the league after it, though.
