DUMBARTON secured a convincing 3-0 victory over East Fife at the Rock this afternoon, dominating for significant periods of the game and looking much more solid at the back.
In the first
half Sons struggled to turn possession into real chances. Then Scott
Agnew opened the scoring on 35 minutes with a superbly
flighted free kick from a central position.
The visitors came out
fighting after the break, but Sons were soon back in control. Good goals
from Mark Gilhaney on the hour and Alan Lithgow eight minutes later put
the result beyond doubt.
The result means that Dumbarton move
into fourth spot in the Irn Bru SFL Second Division. Next up is Brechin
City in the Scottish Cup, before a visit to Cowdenbeath in the League. (12 Nov 2011)
