DUMBARTON continued their strong run of recent form this afternoon, claiming an important 3-2 win on the road against Hamilton Accies, though not without some nervous moments towards the end.
In an action packed first half it was a pile-driver from Steven McDougall on 24 minutes that put Sons in front.
Hamilton had several chances, but the visitors looked good for their lead at the break, especially when Accies went down to ten men when Fisher was dismissed for violent conduct not long after the half hour.
Sons came out full of purpose in the second half, extending their lead courtesy of a finely worked move and and a coolly taken finish by Scott Agnew three minutes after the restart.
The game became nervy from a Dumbarton perspective after Ryan pulled a goal back for Hamilton on 63 minutes. His powerful strike left Sons ‘keeper Stephen Grindlay with no chance.
Paul McGinn deservedly added a third goal for Dumbarton on 84 minutes. However, just as the game looked wrapped up Accies struck back from May three minutes from time.
It was a nervy conclusion, but Dumbarton held on to their lead to claim an impressive third consecutive victory.
Next up is another trip to New Douglas Park on Tuesday night, 2nd April.
