Dumbarton 3-3 Raith Rovers

Dumbarton preserved their unbeaten record in 2014 by coming back to draw with Raith Rovers.

Colin Nish fired home to put the Sons ahead but Gordon Smith's strike levelled matters.

Chris Kane slotted away Dumbarton's second only for John Baird to net a second Raith equaliser.

Smith's second, a header, had Rovers in front for the first time but Scott Agnew's stunning 20-yard volley confirmed the draw.
