THE late leveller by substitute Bryan Prunty against Falkirk yesterday that secured a point meant that it is the club’s best start to a league campaign since season 2008/09.

All opening matches in the four intervening years resulted in losses — some heavy defeats too — so the score draw with the Bairns reverses what has been a depressing trend.

Prunty’s goal came with just six minutes remaining to cancel out McGrandles’ 64th minute opener, giving the Bet Butler troops a deserved point.

Sons looked strong as an attacking force and had a total of ten shots, all on target, throughout the game, compared to Falkirk’s five.

Topping the Championship table following a remarkable 4-3 win over Livingston are (old) Second Division champions Queen of the South, and Sons lie in fifth spot.

Next up for Ian Murray’s squad will be a short trip to Hamilton Accies next Saturday, kick-off 3pm
