A vital three points for the Sons last night. I liked how the BBC report says that Dumbarton won against ten man Stenny as the home side were already 2-1 up at the time of the sending off
Paul Quinn’s effort was blocked by Ben Gordon as the visitors threatened early on but Chaplain netted the opener with a neat finish on half-time.
Stenny’s William Lyle levelled from 12 yards after being put through by Pat Scullion in the 65th minute. I thought there was a touch of offside about it but not many seemed to share that view.
Lyle then fouled Chaplain in the area and the striker scored the resulting penalty.
Gary Thom was sent off late in the game for a needless and crazy lunge on Sons keeper Jan Vonacek.
Four points in four days takes the pressure off for a wee while.
A big match on Saturday for the visit of Peterhead, who also won last night, and Ken Fitlike on Saturday.
