DUMBARTON fought tenaciously in Kirkcaldy this afternoon, coming away with a valuable point from a 0-0 draw against Raith Rovers.

Before the game began there was a moving minute’s applause in memory of Dumbarton chief executive Gilbert Lawrie, who passed away this week.

In a tight first half, Sons had to defend solidly and found themselves under pressure in the middle of the park.

Raith hit the top of the upright and Sons’ Frazer Wright had a header cleared off the line. Dumbarton had a couple of further opportunities late on, but could not find a breakthrough.

After the break the visitors survived a goalmouth scramble and a series of pressing corners.

Sons continued to frustrate Rovers throughout the half. With minutes to go they caught Raith on the break, but Kevin Cuthbert saved easily from Tom Walsh.

The point sets Dumbarton up for a vital Championship clash with Livingston next Saturday at the Cheaper Insurance Direct Stadium.
