Ouzy See: The Edinburgh City striker getting under Dumbarton's skin

He scored at the Rock this time last year and he's hell bent on doing it again.

It would be fair to say Edinburgh City striker Ouzy See has got under Dumbarton's skin.

His goal in the second leg of the League One play-off final 12 months ago wasn't enough to overturn a 3-1 first-leg defeat as the Citizens failed to secure promotion at the final hurdle.

However, the 27-year-old's brace in Tuesday night's 4-1 triumph over the Sons has gone a long way to righting a few wrongs.

The Capital side travel west tomorrow in hot pursuit of advancing to the play-off final for a second successive season, where they'll battle Annan or Forfar for a place in Scottish football's third tier.

"The game at Dumbarton last year was under totally different circumstances," See recalled. "So, we knew how important the first leg on Tuesday was because of what happened last time. We didn't want to make that mistake again so we can now go through there in a much healthier position. Hopefully I can get another goal or two.

"To come away with a 4-1 win the other night, we couldn't have asked for a better start in this year's play-offs. I'm delighted to have scored a couple of goals and given us a platform to go on and win the tie.

"We can't afford to be too defensive. They'll be looking to score early so that is likely to open up a lot of space for us. And if we can get an early goal then even better. We have to approach this game as a 0-0 because we know how quickly things can change in football."

See added: "We know this time next week we could be just a couple of hours from being promoted to League One so it's a potentially huge week for the club. I am the only player still here from the squad that got promoted from the Lowland League in 2016 so it's exciting. It would be a massive achievement if we can accomplish it. We're hitting form at just the right time."
