Sons held to draw by Alloa

This summary was first published as Frustrating draw for Sons on the official DFC website.

Sons warm up before the game
Dumbarton frustratingly lost the lead twice against Alloa Athletic at SHS this afternoon, drawing 2-2 in a match that both sides needed to win.

Well-taken goals from Craig McLeish (36 minutes) and Andy Geggan (48 minutes) had given Sons hope of a vital victory and three points, but the home side were unravelled by defensive frailties.

A brace from Wasps' Michael McGowan either side of the break punished Dumbarton for slips at the back, and they were not able to take advantage of a number of chances, in both halves, that could have sealed the game.

Next week's home game against Peterhead now takes on an even more important complexion for Sons.
