Dumbarton Football Club - Sons of the Rock 1872

SONS DRAW AGAINST FORFAR

Saturday 13th April 2019

DUMBARTON grabbed another point on the road against Forfar Athletic this afternoon, with a goalless draw the outcome of a tight encounter.

Sons boss Jim Duffy named the same side for the third game in a row, but Stuart Carswell was injured in the warm-up and was replaced by Boris Melingui (pictured).

As the game progressed, the visitors had more shots and a little more possession. But neither side could find a way through, despite a number of opportunities at each end.

Chances were particularly scarce during the first half, with Dumbarton starting well and Forfar coming back into it as half time approached.

After the break both Craig Barr and Ross Forbes came closest for Sons.

The draw leaves Dumbarton in seventh position in League One, on the same points as Stranraer, but with a superior goal difference — and four points clear of the drop zone with three matches left to play.

Coming up for Sons is the visit of East Fife to the C&G Systems Stadium next weekend, on Saturday 20th April.
