After a raft of injuries for Jim Chapman's men meant that Dumbarton had to make the long trip to Elgin with several juniors in tow, the Sons had to be content with a dour 1-1 draw. Ray Logan equalised for DFC on 75 minutes after Steven McKay put the home side ahead with a well-executed free kick on 24 minutes. But I gather it was a grim match and performance... with a lengthy journey back home for the loyal Sons fans who made the trip. That's fitba.
Meanwhile, my locals Exeter City also pulled a point out of the fire in the second half at Darlington, their first league match since winning promotion back to League Two. A 'game of two halves', apparently, with the home side well on top at the start. Next Saturday is the season opener at St James' Park.
