DUMBARTON progressed to a historic William Hill Scottish Cup quarter final this afternoon, thanks to a hard fought 1-0 win away at Alloa.

Sons had the lion’s share of possession in the first half, finally taking the lead through Colin Nish, after a well-worked build up.

It could have been 2-0 by half time when Chris Kane was pulled down in the penalty area. But the Wasps’ keeper redeemed himself with a solid save from the spot-kick.

Alloa also had their chances too, necessitating some important blocks and fine saves from Sons’ goalie Stephen Grindlay and a determined back line.

In the second half Scott Linton cracked the top of the crossbar with a pelting 20 yard strike.

Dumbarton lived dangerously at times towards the end if the match. But they did more than enough to claim a deserved and famous Cup victory.
