|Dumbarton strike back|
The home side went ahead on four minutes from Darren Brady's deflected shot. The Loons dominated the first 20 minutes, but Sons fought back and Jon McShane equalised with a free kick ten minutes before the break.
In the second half Dumbarton played positive, attacking football, creating at least half a dozen chances. But Forfar Athletic clinched the game on 73 minutes when Ross Campbell took advantage of a swift counter-attack to sweep the ball past Stephen Grindlay from the left.
The result is disappointing, but Sons played well for long stretches of the match and will travel to Brechin City on Tuesday night determined to continue their revival.
