Gregor Buchanan joked he had registered a defender’s hat-trick, as Dumbarton prepared for their top of the table clash with Stirling Albion by seeing off Stranraer.The skipper grabbed a goal and an assist in Saturday’s 2-0 victory, with the club now one shy of matching a club record for the most clean sheets in a season.But the big defender insisted Tuesday’s clash between the top two won’t determine who lifts silverware come May - with Dumbarton currently five points ahead, albeit with the Binos having two games in hand.Bucky said: “We went to Stranraer and did our job.

It’s a notoriously difficult place to come, especially at this stage in the season when everyone is doing their utmost to get points - wherever they are.

So it was important.“The way the lads went about their business was very good and, from a personal point-of-view, to get a goal, claim an assist and get a clean sheet was a defender’s hat-trick.“The boys know how big the Stirling Albion match is.

But at the end of the day it’s just another game. We’ve still to play them twice, so it’s not do or die.“It’s definitely one that both teams will feel is very important.
