Dumbarton v Peterhead



Further frustration for Peterhead, who went down 1-0 at Dumbarton courtesy of Ryan McGeever’s second half goal.

McGeever struck in the 53rd minute to send the Blue Toon crashing to a fourth straight defeat.

The Balmoor side were still without Simon Ferry but they started positively with Rory McAllister flashing a couple of early efforts past the upright before Conor Brennan saved well from Scott Brown.

Isaac Layne wasted a good chance for the hosts in the 29th minute but he was involved in the goal that turned out to be the winner, feeding in a cross for McGeever to bundle in from close range.

That was the 13th goal Peterhead had conceded from their last four away matches and while they tried to conjure up an equaliser, substitute Ryan Conroy went closest with a curling free-kick, which went just wide..

Jim McInally’s team saw plenty of the ball but the result keeps them second bottom, two points ahead of Stranraer.
