St Mirren 1-1 Dumbarton: Match Report
St Mirren off bottom after Dumbarton draw
In-form St Mirren climbed off the foot of the Ladbrokes Championship despite being held 1-1 at home by Dumbarton.
Saints were chasing a fourth successive league win and what would have been a sixth victory in their last eight games, and they were put on course to achieve that thanks to Kyle Magennis' early opener.
The striker cut inside and dispatched clinically after being set up by Cammy Smith in the 10th minute.
Lewis Vaughan equalised for the Sons in the 37th minute after he controlled a long ball superbly, but the hosts should have reclaimed the lead soon after only for Rory Loy to see his penalty saved by Alan Martin.
Home defender Adam Eckersley was shown a red card in the closing stages after picking up a second booking, but it came too late on to adversely affect the Saints' cause.
