Morton 3 - 0 Dumbarton: Duffy’s men cruise into quarter-finals

There was no cause to quibble with the scoreline at Cappielow yesterday – this victory for Morton was absolutely as comfortable as the margin suggests. On paper this all Championship tie, featuring two sides who had drawn their two previous league meetings, looked like it might be a close run thing. The reality was that the contrasting recent form of both sides was cruelly laid bare, with the visitors looking every bit like a side that is now embroiled in a battle to avoid a relegation play-off spot.

Livingston 2 - 0 Dumbarton: Livi up to third in the Championship

David Hopkin resolutely refuses to focus on anything other than the here and now, but even he must be eyeing an end-of-season shot at promotion after watching Livingston move into third in the Championship.

Sights we’d like to see: Wenger at Dumbarton, pie voucher in pocket

The other night, in the middle of a touchline ban, Arsene Wenger faced a dilemma and the potential of having insult added to inconvenience. Normally when managers are banished to the stands they watch from the directors’ box but at Chelsea the poshest seats are right across the field from the dressing rooms. That would have meant a yomp at half-time, losing valuable minutes from his team talk, when he would have been highly conspicuous in his trademark long grey quilted gown – and even before Antonio Conte sneered at him for being “old”, the Arsenal boss would have faced considerable abuse from the successors of the Stamford Bridge skinhead cognoscenti.

Dumbarton 0 - 1 Dunfermline: Cardle boosts Pars play-off hopes

The play-off places at either end of the Championship table were uppermost in both these sides’ minds going into this game and a majestic first-half strike by Joe Cardle was enough to ensure it was Dunfermline whose hopes of being in the mix for the head to heads for promotion that were reinforced.

Queen of the South 0 - 0 Dumbarton: Sons make their point

Dumbarton bounced back from their Boxing Day defeat by Livingston to earn a hard-fought point at Palmerston as Queens’ play-off hopes suffered another blow. A share of the spoils was the least the Sons deserved against the Dumfries side who have now won just once in their last seven games.

This was a lot more comfortable than the scoreline suggests for Dumbarton, who in the process advanced to the semi-final of a national cup competition for the first time since they played Hearts in the same stage of the Scottish Cup way back in the days of flapping denim flares and sideburns in 1976.

Greenock Morton 1 - 1 Dumbarton: Ton fail to move into play-off spot

Honours very even as this River Clyde derby ended with Dumbarton happier with the share of the points than Morton, who as the home team will have been hoping for more – but the dogged determination of the visitors warranted they go back over the Erskine Bridge with something in tow.
