DUMBARTON are 90 minutes away from another Championship survival after a magnificent goal gave them a priceless 1-0 victory at Alloa in the play-off final first leg.

With only six minutes gone, Stuart Carswell (pictured celebrating) scored only his second senior goal with a searing 25-yard drive after controlling Danny Handling’s pass.

As expected, the Wasps made it tough, and could have levelled only minutes later, but ex-Son Jordan Kirkpatrick struck a post.

The second half was equally evenly contested, with Kevin Nisbet missing narrowly for Dumbarton while only a fantastic tackle by Craig Barr denied Calum Smith six yards out.

The two teams meet again in the second leg at the C&G Systems Stadium on Sunday at 4.10. A draw on the day will suffice for Sons to claim a seventh consecutive Championship season.
