GAFFER Ian Murray was pleased with the effort and determination of his team yesterday, despite losing 4-0 to league leaders Hearts.
The opening goal, scored by the imposing and impressive Osman Sow, was the subject of controversy for the Sons boss.
He said: “It looked like a free-kick as Danny had his arms up to try and get to the ball.
“The incident did affect us a wee bit as it was at a crucial point in the game.
“It was a hard one for the ref as there is a lot of bodies in the way and looked as if Danny was boxed in.
“The first two goals were disappointing to lose, the second one in particular. Poor marking more than anything else and the second goal is always important in games.
“For most of the game I though we were excellent and the effort we put in was great.
“We played at Hibs recently and lost 3-0 but the performance at Tynecastle was night and day [better].
“First half we played well and even at 1-0 we were still in the game and at periods I though we had Hearts worried.”
Turning to the next game against Livingston, the manager emphasised how important the match will be.
“It’s a big game against Livingston and we know how important it will be.
“Positive results against Livingston and others round about us the ones that are going to keep us in the division.”
Before the trip to West Lothian, Sons have a Stirlingshire Cup tie against Falkirk on St Patrick’s Day at the Dumbarton Football Stadium.
