Dumbarton draw with Forfar Athletic

HAVING led for most of the game, Sons ended up having to share the points in a 1-1 draw with visitors Forfar Athletic at the Rock today.

On a freezing, windy afternoon, Pat Walker put Dumbarton 1-0 up on 16 minutes, but neither team could add to the score before the break.

In the second half, Forfar were much the stronger side. Sons had one strong penalty appeal turned down, and Alan Lithgow saved them with a remarkable clearance off the line.
It looked as if Dumbarton might just hang on for a win until Kevin Motion spoiled the party by heading home for the visitors in the fifth minute of time added on.

Due to other results, Sons now encouragingly occupy the last promotion play-off place on goal difference. Next up is a challenging trip to Albion Rovers on Saturday 10th December.
