DUMBARTON achieved an incredible turnaround at Livingston this afternoon, claiming a vital, hard fought 2-1 win.
In a disappointing first half, most of the possession and pressure came from Livingston and Sons ended up with no shots on goal.
The home side went one up on 29 minutes when a Dumbarton attack broke down, Andy Graham slipped, and Livi broke through. Daniel Mullen struck the ball into the bottom right hand corner.
Sons were much more lively and determined at the beginning of the second half, but Livingston still looked threatening up front.
The fightback finally paid off on 62 minutes when Garry Fleming stormed in after a corner to slam the ball into the roof of the net to make it 1-1.
Then on 70 minutes Sons went in front to the vocal delight of the travelling support.
Fine work from Mark Gilhaney on the wing got the ball to Mitch Megginson. He trapped it, turned and fired a fast low shot home to the right.
The victory ends a difficult spell for Dumbarton, and provides renewed energy for their Championship campaign.
