DUMBARTON manager Ian Murray praised his players after they secured an important home point against SPFL Championship promotion contenders Queen of the South this weekend.
“The guys went out and we got a performance as well as a result, so that’s a double hit for us,” the gaffer told reporters after the game.
“It’s now six points between us and Cowdenbeath, and with their goal difference taking a battering today [against Hearts] that makes it a two-gamer.
“If we can now take four points out of two games, particularly against one of our part-time rivals here, then it will go a long way to keeping us in this league.
“If we win next week, another win in the next eight games will probably be enough for us,” he added.
Even so, the boss is stressing that there is no complacency, no let up on effort, and a continued determination for Sons to claim every point possible in the closing period of the season.
Dumbarton have secured just two points from the last 24, so they know there is still a lot to do – but the effort and result against Queen of the South has clearly given the squad a big boost.
