Dumbarton Football Club - Sons of the Rock 1872

SONS GRAB A POINT AGAINST BAIRNS

Saturday 23rd December 2017

DUMBARTON claimed another point in their Championship campaign after a feisty 0-0 draw against Falkirk at the YOUR Radio 103FM Stadium.

The early pressure came from the visitors, with Sons keeper Scott Gallacher called into action several times in the first 20 minutes to make important blocks.

For Sons there were half chances for David Wilson and Dimitrios Froxylias, in what was a fairly even, windy first half overall.

Dumbarton came out with all to play for after the break. On 50 minutes they had the ball in the net, but it was ruled out for a foul on Falkirk goalie Mutch.

On 64 minutes Sons' Chris McLaughlin took a nasty fall and had to be treated for several minutes by physios and medics before being stretchered off to applause from both sets of fans.

The game opened up in the later stages, but was also interrupted by a number of strong challenges as both sides looked for a late winner.

In the end it was not to be, with Sons heading into their Boxing Day home match against Livingston on the back of a point that keeps them clear of the Bairns and Brechin at the foot of the SPFL Championship.

The Sonstrust Man of the Match was Dumbarton keeper Scott Gallacher.
