Dumbarton Football Club - Sons of the Rock 1872

SONS LOSE TO STRANRAER

Saturday 6th October 2018

DUMBARTON lost 3-2 to Stranraer in this afternoon's match at Stair Park.

They went behind after 11 minutes when Grant Anderson latched on to a long ball forward and lobbed debuting keeper Robbie Mutch to score.

But a battling Sons side, once again ravaged with injuries, equalised only two minutes later when Ross Forbes scrambled the ball home.

Nine minutes from half time Stranraer regained the lead, David Brownlie converting from close range from a corner.

On the hour mark, though, another debutant, Dom Thomas, saw a shot deflected into the net as Sons levelled for the second time.

Dumbarton continued to push forward but were caught out on 66 minutes when PJ Crossan bent home what proved to be the winner.

There is no game next Saturday, allowing the injury victims a chance to recover. Sons' next fixture is on Saturday, October 20 at Arbroath.
