Dumbarton Football Club - Sons of the Rock 1872

SONS FRUSTRATED BY AIRDRIE

Saturday 14th September 2019

DUMBARTON'S three game winning streak came to an end at the C&G Systems Stadium this afternoon, as they were beaten 1-0 by a single first half goal from Airdrieonians.

Sons started well, stringing together some good passes and testing the Diamonds' defence.

But as the half progressed Airdrie started to look stronger, pushing forward and protesting a penalty decision that went against them.

Then on 44 minutes Dumbarton failed to clear a corner and Paul McKay stabbed in the ball off the bar to give the visitors the lead.

Just on half time Sons thought they had equalised from Stuart Carswell but the officials adjudged that the ball had not crossed the line.

After the break Airdrieonians continued to press, while at the other end Isaac Layne hit the bar with a close range reaction header.

Dumbarton kept the pressure up for an equaliser as the game drew to a close, but despite a number of near misses just could not find a way through.
