St Mirren 1-2 Dumbarton

St Mirren manager Ian Murray suffered a home defeat at the hands of his former club as Garry Fleming's late penalty secured victory for Dumbarton.

The sons took the lead when Willie Gibson's free-kick took a heavy deflection past keeper Mark Ridgers.

Grant Gallagher came close to extending the lead before Scott Agnew netted against his former club to level.

With six minutes remaining, Fleming coolly converted the spot-kick after Barry Cuddihy's foul on Kevin Cawley.
