Dumbarton Football Club - Sons of the Rock 1872

SONS TOPPLE LEAGUE LEADERS IN PAISLEY

Saturday 2nd December 2017

DUMBARTON defeated St Mirren 1-0 at the Paisley 2021 Stadium this afternoon, with a performance of determination and at times style.

A goalless first half in which Sons had some spells of attacking football ended with Stelios Demetriou being shown a red card for an elbow on Sam Wardrop.

Dumbarton settled into the second period well but had to wait until the 80th minute for the goal that would win the game.

Tom Walsh, who was outstanding for the entire game, latched on to a Stuart Carswell assist to coolly slot past Samson to the acclaim of the noisy and supportive fans in the stadium's North Stand.

There was a scare towards the end of the game with Sons having used all their subs, they lost Froxylias with a recurrence of his hamstring injury.
