MANAGER Stevie Farrell accepted that Dumbarton deserved to be relegated to cinch League Two after yesterday’s second leg draw with Edinburgh City.

The 1-1 scoreline at the Dumbarton Football Stadium was not enough to overturn the 4-1 defeat sustained in the first leg on Tuesday.

And Stevie made no excuses when facing the media after the game.

He said: “The first leg was the one that did it. You just hope and pray in the circumstances and when we got the first goal it gave us a bit of hope.

“But it ended up summing up our season. We gave ourselves a lift and then conceded such a cheap goal to give away.

“Everybody then knows it is a long way back. Over the two legs of the tie we have deserved nothing and we deserve to be relegated.

“I have said to the players that is my responsibility. I have thanked the players for their endeavours. We lacked quality and know-how in League One and I have to take responsibility for that.

“I have to learn from this experience. I said the honest truth after the first leg on Tuesday that individual errors had hurt us, and today we are relegated and deservedly so.”
