Dumbarton 1-0 Alloa Athletic

Garry Fleming's first-half penalty was enough to secure a vital win for Dumbarton against Alloa Athletic.

Liam Buchanan should have put the visitors in front when he rounded Danny Rogers early on, but he fired wide.

On the stroke of half-time Kevin Cawley was tripped by Dylan Easton and Fleming sent Craig McDowall the wrong way from the spot.

Rogers made an excellent save to tip Greg Rutherford's effort onto the crossbar after the break.
