Dumbarton Football Club - Sons of the Rock 1872

SONS OUT OF THE CUP AT CAPPIELOW

Saturday 10th February 2018

DUMBARTON bowed out of the Scottish Cup in the fifth round at Cappielow this afternoon, going down 3-0 to Greenock Morton in a generally lifeless game.

The home side applied pressure from the word go, and on 12 minutes found themselves in front.

A neat one-two sent Morton's Frank Ross through, and he chipped Scott Gallacher in the Sons goal to make it 1-0.

Dumbarton had a couple of half chances towards the end of the opening period, but struggled to get into gear throughout.

The Greenock men struck again immediately after the break. Iredale was left with a simple finish for 2-0 at the near post after Sons failed to clear their lines.

Dumbarton pressed back but struggled to create chances in the final third and Morton soon regained control of the match.

On 80 minutes Morton booked their place in the quarter-finals when Bob McHugh converted for 3-0 from close range.
