St Mirren remain seven points adrift at the foot of the Championship as Dumbarton twice came from behind to level.

David Clarkson knocked in a Cammy Smith delivery from close range to give the Buddies a half time lead.

But Christian Nade was given time and space to power in a header from a corner on 56 minutes.

Harry Davis nodded in a debut goal for the visitors but Robert Thomson later finished after a smart turn.

The draw keeps Dumbarton, in eighth spot, 11 points clear of the Paisley side, who could not make up any ground given ninth-placed Ayr United's surprise draw away to leaders Hibernian.
