Sons go down 3-1 at Cliftonhill

DISAPPOINTING Dumbarton lost out 3-1 to an energetic looking Albion Rovers at Cliftonhill Stadium this afternoon.

The curse of the ex-player struck twice in the first half. Former Son John Gemmell scored a brace, including a close range header, to give Albion a big advantage and the visitors an uphill task.

Bryan Prunty pulled one back for Dumbarton with a scrambled goal before the break. But in a low key second period it was the Wee Rovers who maintained overall control of the game, making sure of all three points through a firm, low strike from Robert Love.

There was no way back for Sons after the third goal for Albion. They slip to fifth in the Irn Bru SFL Second Division, but will be seeking to get back on track when Stenhousemuir visit the Rock on Saturday 17th December. (10 Dec 2011)
