Queens Mugged By The Sons Of The Rock

Last updated : 29 September 2013 By Queens MAD


A late goal from substitute Garry Fleming earned Dumbarton victory away to Queen of the South.

Colin Nish had a chance to put the visitors ahead after eight minutes when he latched onto the end of Mitchel Megginson's cut-back, but the striker fired clean over the bar.

The Sons took the lead after 18 minutes, when Chris Turner's half-volley from the edge of the box flew into the bottom left-hand corner.

Dumbarton's lead lasted all of seven minutes when Iain Russell side-footed home Ryan McGuffie's cross, to pull the Doonhammers level.

Dumbarton came close to regaining the lead after 65 minutes, but Turner's shot was parried away by Calum Antell.

Queens had the opportunity to perhaps grab a win but Reilly shot straight at Ewings on a one to one and Russell lashed the rebound over the top.

The Sons snatched victory with four minutes remaining. Bryan Prunty's shot was blocked by Turner, the striker played the rebound into the path of Fleming who slid the ball home to earn Dumbarton the three points.

Once again Queens had the chance to grab a win but the rub of the green was not with us as Reilly missed a great opening. 

McIntyre must now be under some pressure to rally his troops for a tough visit to Falkirk next week.
