DUMBARTON looked to be heading to a a 2-1 win over second-placed Raith Rovers at the C & G Systems Stadium, but the visitors snatched a draw with a goal in the 92nd minute.

Sons will feel that it was two points droppedafter a fine performance by Jim Duffy's team.

Raith took the lead in the 19th minute and it was a scruffy goal to lose for Dumbarton.

Nathan Flanagan toe-poked home following a scramble in the six-yard area.

Sons equalised in 27 mins with skipper Ross Forbes (pictured) scoring his tenth of the season, before Stuart Carswell put Dumbarton ahead with a sweet left-footed strike.

Dumbarton looked to have done enough to secure all three points, until ex-Son Kevin Nisbet headed home in injury time.
