DUMBARTON claimed another vital three points at home to Raith Rovers this afternoon, with a penalty near the end securing the gritty 2-1 victory.

The win came at a cost, however, with both Jordan Kirkpatrick and Mark Gilhaney going off injured early on.

Scott Agnew (pictured) gave the home side the lead in the first half, with a superb strike that rocketed into the top corner of the net from distance.

Sons could not add to their lead before half time. Chris Kane broke through and almost made it two in the second half, but David McGurn in the Raith goal pulled off the first of two fine saves to knock it away.

The visitors then came back into the match and equalised as Mark Stewart raced away and prodded the ball past Dumbarton keeper Danny Rogers.

Raith had their heads up at this point and could have grabbed the lead, but man of the match Scott Agnew stepped up to convert a late penalty when Sons substitute Archie Campbell was fouled in the area.

Dumbarton are at home again next Saturday, when the visitors are Falkirk.
