Dumbarton 1 Stenhousemuir 2. A goal from Lynas in the first half of this important match at the Rock was never enough to take the points against Stenny who waited until late in the game to score two goals which gave them victory. There will now be a nail-biting end to the season for Sons’ fans.  There was a moment of delight for local fans on Sunday evening when Scotland skipper John McGinn scored a tremendous goal for Aston Villa against Chelsea to give them a 2-0 win away from home. McGinn’s goal from 30 metres out gave the Chelsea ‘keeper no chance and won the West Dunbartonshire man the Man of the Match Award.  THE Sons Supporters Trust will hold its AGM at Dumbarton Football Stadium on the evening of Wednesday, April 5.  The evening, being held in Bar 72, will begin at 7 pm.

DUMBARTON have lost 2-1 at home to Stenhousemuir today, losing more ground in the race at the top of the league.

The early stages of the game were held up for several minutes by an injury to Stenhousemuir’s Jacob Blaney, who had to leave the action after only six minutes.

A Ryan Wallace shot which crashed off the bar provided the game’s first clear chance.

The visitors’ Michael Miller then also hit the woodwork, albeit with a cross, as the teams toiled.

In the fourth minute of first half injury time, Sons led, Aron Lynas scoring with a well struck shot from the edge of the box.

With 20 minutes left, Stenny equalised, Gavin Reilly converting from a cross from the left.

They could then have taken the lead, but Sons were relieved to see Thomas Orr shoot across goal at close range.

However, he made no mistake with a finish at the back post from a corner on 78 minutes.

Dumbarton’s next game is away to Annan Athletic next Saturday.

Sons are now tailing Stirling Albion by five points at the top of the league. Albion have 59 points and Sons 54, having played a game more.
