Dumbarton 3-1 Alloa Athletic

Christian Nade's treble gave Dumbarton victory over Championship bottom side Alloa Athletic as the gap between the two teams increased to 15 points.

Nade prodded home following a corner from Jamie Lindsay.

Former Sons forward Mitch Megginson levelled by adding the finishing touch to Iain Flannigan's good work.

But Nade headed the hosts back ahead and the striker completed his hat-trick after the break before Dumbarton had Jon Routledge sent off.
