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.
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.
