Dumbarton Football Club - Sons of the Rock 1872

SONS HELD AT HOME BY DUNFERMLINE

Saturday 29th October 2016

DUMBARTON salvaged a point thanks to a late Garry Fleming equaliser against Dunfermline Athletic this afternoon.

Despite the Pars controlling possession in the first half-hour, Sons took the lead in 37 minutes when a Robert Thomson driven cross was converted by his namesake Joe.

But five minutes into the second period Dunfermline found themselves level. Confusion in the Sons defence allowed Nick Clark an easy header to equalise.

Substitute Joe Cardle gave the Pars a 2-1 advantage in 81 minutes with Sons looking defeated.

But Daniel Harvie and Fleming combined just two minutes later with the latter controlling the ball (pictured) then smashing home from six yards.

The draw pushes Sons one point further ahead of next week's opponents St Mirren who lost to league leaders Hibs.

The Buddies have a game in hand over Sons and they play Morton midweek.
