Partick Thistle 0-0 Dumbarton

SPFL Tier 3, Firhill Stadium, 5/12/20.

I’d have taken a point before the game so can’t be too unhappy. And a clean sheet is always welcome. It could have been worse. It seems they missed a penalty (or, rather, Kevin Dabrowski saved it,) dodgily awarded though it was by all accounts.

But. We apparently offered nothing going forward. That’s not a good platform from which to progress.

We might be sixth but we’re only three points off the bottom of the table.

OK, we’re also only three points shy of third. But we haven’t won in over a month and in that time haven’t scored either. That needs to change.

Peterhead 1-0 Dumbarton

SPFL Tier 3, Balmoor Stadium, 21/11/20.

Well. Normal service appears to have been resumed. A good start with a draw, two wins and three clean sheets has been overtaken by two defeats in a row. Mind you according to the club’s view of the game we again, as a fortnight ago, might have got something from the game.

We now have three very hard matches indeed in a row against Falkirk, Partick Thistle and Cove Rangers respectively, all of whom are above us in the table.

My spot in front of the computer is booked for the live stream on Tuesday night.

Forfar Athletic 0-0 Dumbarton

SPFL Tier 3, Station Park, 17/10/20.

Not a bad start (not a loss,) not a really good start (not a win either.)

It’ll do to be going on with, though, even if a goal would have been nice.

Clyde’s win against Partick Thistle makes our defeat there last Saturday look not too bad a result.

We’ve got them at home next week though.

Dumbarton 4-1 Airdrie Utd

SFL Div 1, The Rock, 20/4/13

Tantalising. Six points ahead two games to go.

I wasn’t there but it sounds like it was a comprehensive victory.

Unfortunately the result at East End Park today was the only one of the three possibilities which meant our win still didn’t mean we’d certainly avoid the play-offs.

A point from Cowdenbeath next week does the job and guarantees us seventh. Even a defeat will see us safe if Dunfermline fail to beat Partick Thistle. Heady days.

‘Mon the Sons.

Dumbarton 2-2 Cowdenbeath

SFL Div 1, The Rock, 2/3/13

Another two points dropped late on at home against a team we really need to be beating.

But.. this wasn’t a complete disaster. We didn’t fall further behind Cowdenbeath and the two game losing run – the longest under Ian Murray (so far!) – ended.

Can’t see us getting much against Thistle at Firhill next week though.

Dumbarton 2-0 Partick Thistle

SFL Div 1, The Rock, 12/1/13

Hurray! A home win in the league!

Boo! Dunfermline allowed Airdrie Utd to beat them.

You can’t rely on anyone these days.

Partick Thistle 3-0 Dumbarton

SFL Div 1, Firhill Stadium, 25/8/12.

I thought about going to this one, but now I’m glad I didn’t. Glasgow was just a bit far considering I feel knackered after two weeks back at the sharp end of the chalkface. And the forecast was for showers.

Still:- Played 3, Won 0, Drawn 0, Lost 3.

Is it time for a predictor?

But which one?

Goals against? (On this form, 120.)

Goal difference? (On this form, -108.)

Goals scored? (On this form, 12.)

Total Points? (On this form, 0.)

The only consolation I can draw is that the three games we’ve lost have been against teams currently in the top 5 (though I don’t expect two of them to stay there.)

I see the BBC has us down as having lost 4 times. (They seem to have input today’s results twice.)

That might be about right, though.

Gordon Lennon Memorial Match

This Sunday (15th Nov) a football match in memory of Gordon Lennon, Dumbarton FC’s former captain who died tragically in June, will take place. The game features players from all the teams Gordon played for from youth side Harmony Row through to Partick Thistle, Albion Rovers and Dumbarton.

Big Rab – who chaired the organising committee for this – has the details here.

There are tickets available on the door.

Sadly I won’t be able to make it but if you’re close by and wish to contribute to the cause, I encourage you to go along.
