Dumbarton 1-0 Falkirk

Dumbarton dented Falkirk's promotion hopes with a slim victory against the Bairns.

Archie Campbell's superb strike will get the headlines but Sons goalkeeper Danny Rogers made some timely saves to ensure the hosts won all three points.

Craig Sibbald curling effort was the best chance of the first half, and Rogers made a brilliant one-handed save to deny John Baird in the second half.

After Campbell's strike into the top corner Rogers thwarted Baird once more.
