HONOURS EVEN AT ALLOA
18-Sep-2010Alan Maitland's men dominated for much of a poor match watched by 558 fans at Recreation Park, had several efforts on target, but could not beat keeper Michael White who had some fine saves.
The closest Dumbarton came to scoring was an early effort by Scott Chaplain, playing up front with Ross Campbell, which went over the bar, and in the second half a speculative lob by Tony Wallace which nearly deceived the home keeper.
In the second half the visitors came much more into the game, especially after sub striker Derek Carcary was sent on by manager Jim Chapman, but they rarely troubled the home defence in which ex-Sons skipper Michael Dunlop had a confident game at left back.
Sons deserved a point because of their second half display, but Alloa really should have made more of their opportunities.
