Dumbarton Football Club - Sons of the Rock 1872

SONS DRAW AT TANNADICE

Saturday 9th September 2017

DUMBARTON claimed a point at Tannadice today with a spirited performance against Dundee Utd.

Smith gave Dumbarton a fifth minute lead, sneaking in at the back post to convert a Walsh cross.

United forced a save from Gallacher on the twenty minute mark before Walsh again tormented the home team's rearguard.

Dumbarton surrendered possession a little too easily at times but were effective on the break and headed into the half time break ahead.

Gallacher made two outstanding stops to deny United on the hour mark with the Tannadice team pressing.

Walsh almost doubled Dumbarton's lead in 75 mins with a looping shot that evaded Lewis but bounced off the crossbar.

Sons cruelly lost their goal advantage on 86 mins when Keatings fired home a blistering free kick from 19-yards after Wilson had given away the foul.

But Sons held on in the remaining minutes to claim a precious point.
