Dumbarton 3-1 Alloa Athletic

Dumbarton stretched their unbeaten run in the Scottish Championship to four games with a comfortable win over Alloa Athletic.

Poor Wasps defending allowed the Sons' Archie Campbell to tap in from close range.

Jordan Kirpkpatrick's header doubled Dumbarton's lead in the second half and Colin Nish netted a third.

Stephen Simmons scored a stunning 18-yard volley for Alloa but it was too little too late.
