Sons' Methil elated spirit

Dumbarton go for goal again
Dumbarton claimed a fine 3-1 win over East Fife at Methil this evening, secured by goals from Pat Walker, Mark Gilhaney and Andy Geggan either side of the break.

After a shaky start, Sons looked to be in control of the game and soon found themselves two in front – only for the Fifers to get a goal back through Matthew Park just before half time.

In the second half Dumbarton continued to play an assured passing game much of the time. But East Fife refused to roll over, and when they won a penalty late in the second half it looked as if the home side might get back into the match.

However a superb diving spotkick save from Robert Linn by Sons 'keeper Stephen Grindlay effectively ended the threat, and moved Dumbarton up to 7th in the league table.
