    Dumbarton hold on

    Once again on Saturday, it proved just how difficult every game in this division is this season, after recording one of the best results in the club’s history in midweek, it was back to the SPFL Championship, which is the club’s main aim this season, but the defeat against Dumbarton was disappointing albeit manager Barry Smith had both Liam Buchanan and Adam Asghar both added to the injury list, although Stephen Simmons did return after being ill during the week.
    The first goal in these games are hugely important and “The Wasps” couldn’t have come any closer when Stephen Simmons shot hit the inside of the far post, spin across the face of the goals and out for a bye kick. Five minutes later Chris Kane on loan from St Johnstone broke the deadlock firing home at the back post. Stephen Simmons on the half hour might have been given a penalty but in was not to be Alloa’s day. In the second half both sides had opportunities to score – a Mark Docherty corner was missed and nearly sneaked in at the back post, and Ben Gordon had a late header which went past the post. Dumbarton held on for a fortune full points extending our poor run against “The Sons” at home, going back to 22nd April, 2006 when we last defeated Dumbarton at Alloa.
