I’m a Jonah
I attended my last Sons match on December 10th at Albion Rovers.
The home side that day outplayed and outwitted Dumbarton.
A former carthorse once on Dumbarton’s books, contrived to look more than adequate that day and scored two goals in a 3-1 victory.
Since then Dumbarton have played three games against formidable opposition.
They have won all three, two by a 3-2 margin involving last-gasp goals by the talismanic Pat Walker.
I have supported Dumbarton FC for 42 years and if there are last minute goals involved in their matches they are generally to be recorded for the opposition. That’s how it has always seemed anyway.
Yesterday’s 3-2 victory was a comeback from 2-1 down to triumph away from home to Airdrie United and leaves the Sons in fourth, i.e. a play off spot.
This was a hard scenario to envisage at 4:50 pm on a cold driech day at Coatbridge.
I’m a Jonah.
Perhaps it’s just as well that the Boxing Day match at East Fife was postponed!
