Making life difficult for ourselves

This summary first appeared as Sons lose to Airdrie United on the official DFC website.

Sons battling it out at the Excelsior
Dumbarton's earlier efforts in an end-to-end game were undone in the second half away to Airdrie United, as the home side came back from one behind to claim a 2-1 victory.

Jordan Halsman gave Sons the lead on 16 minutes, with a sweetly struck free-kick from the edge of the area. While the Diamonds often dominated possession, Dumbarton clung on until the break.

But then in the second half things began to fall apart. Goals from Scott Sally (76 minutes) and Scott Morton (81 minutes), both arising from defensive frailties as Airdrie piled on the pressure, cost Sons the game.

Dumbarton now face a tough season run-in, still needing points (or slip ups from rivals) to be sure of avoiding the relegation play-offs.
