Can anyone buy us a goal?

A second goal-free draw in a week for Dumbarton against Montrose this afternoon. Gaffer Jim Chapman has been outspoken about the forwards' inability to convert chances ("beyond a joke"), and by all accounts that's what happened again this afternoon, albeit with a better performance than in the dismal midweek Forfar fixture. Meanwhile, happier times for Exeter City, who grabbed three vital points from a tense and exciting home match against Northwich Victoria - a side whose performance certainly belied their lowly league status. With Burton and Stevenage losing, fate is back in the Grecians' own hands as far as the struggle for promotion is concerned. Dumbarton, however, remain one of three clubs separated by just three points at the foot of Scottish Football League Division Three, with a home and away game against the other contenders (East Stirling and Forfar) for the end of season booby prize. It could be tough unless we can find some inspiration. 'Mon Sons! Don't make mugs of yersels... please.
