THREE second half goals and some flowing football after the break gave Dumbarton a positive 4-1 win over local rivals Clydebank at the Rock this afternoon.
In a patchy first half the visitors took the lead against the general drift of play just after the half hour, when Adam Strachan confidently converted a well-judged through ball. Two successive strikes against the upright and bar could have widened the gap further, before Mark Gilhaney slid through to equalise for Sons.
Dumbarton stepped up the pace and style after the restart. Goals from Steven McDougall, Jim Lister and Bryan Prunty emphasised the difference in class between the teams. But the Bankies acquitted themselves well overall and prevented Sons from going nap.
Next up for Dumbarton is a stern test on Tuesday night from SPL side St Mirren. But Alan Adamson’s new look squad are unlikely to get as much possession in that game or in the First Division as they enjoyed in today’s run-out.
