Man of the Match:

A brace from Paul McQuade, on his 70th appearance for the club, saw us remain top of the table as we came back from the loss of an early goal to beat Dumbarton for the second time this season.

It was an unchanged starting line which took the field at a windy Central Park although both Jay Stein and Brian Fairbairn returned to the bench.

The Sons opened the scoring after five minutes when an uncharacteristic mistake from Armstrong allowed Andy GEGGAN to fire a curling shot past Hay from 20 yards.

The big defender made amends 13 minutes later when he was brought down in the box by Murray and referee Brines had no hesitation in awarding a penalty.

Paul McQUADE stepped up and coolly slotted the ball home despite keeper Vojacek’s best efforts.

Soon after Winter had a good attempt at goal when he unleashed a shot from the edge of the box but the Czech keeper pulled off a fine save to tip the ball over the bar.

Just after the half hour the visitors came close with two headers from Murray and Gordon while a cross cum shot from Geggan bounced off the crossbar.

Three minutes into the second half Winter once again tried his luck from 25 yards but his shot went just past the post and minutes later McQuade chested the ball down into the path of Adamson who saw his 30 yard shot turned around the post by the keeper.

Midway through the half McQuade beat his marker to fire in a shot which was cleared by Smith and seconds later Vojacek denied Wardlaw.

With ten minutes to go a McQuade shot was blocked by the keeper and then cleared away by O’Donoghue.

The winning goal wasn’t long in coming however when in 82 minutes Linton sent in a cross from the left for Paul McQUADE to flick the ball home at the near post from close range.

As the game drew to a close the Sons almost grabbed an equaliser when Hunter sent in a shot which was blocked by Hay. The ball then broke to Dunlop with Linton making a great clearance on the line to secure the three points.

The game then ended with both Wardlaw and McBride shooting over the bar as the game entered time added on.
