SONS boss Ian Murray has conceded that his team are ‘probably out’ of the running for a Premiership play-off slot following yesterday’s 3-0 loss to Queen of the South.

Goals from former Son Iain Russell, Derek Lyle and Kevin Holt proved to be a savage blow to Dumbarton’s chances of reaching the SPFL Championship top four and manager Murray has this to say:

“I think now Queens have the play-off spot pretty much sewn up. With two games left to play, it’s mathematically possible for us to catch them, but they are in the box seat.”

Reflecting on the game itself, Murray thought his team played well despite the end result.

He said: “The first goal we lost could have been avoided and just when it looked like we would equalise, Queens killed the game with a breakaway. It was a 20-second spell that decided the game.

“But we are now fifth in the league and are the best part-time team in Scotland so it’s been a great season.

“We will have a say in who wins the Championship title as we now play Hamilton Accies next week and then travel to Dens to face Dundee on the last day of the season.

“Both clubs are fighting it out for the title, not discounting Falkirk, so there is still a lot to play for.”
