Agnew fired a free kick in from 22 yards to draw the game level at 1-1 and Fleming’s volley in the dying moments sealed the points for Sons.

The win was only Dumbarton’s second in the league in 2015 and Murray insists the mentality of his side was key to the win.

He said: “That is one thing that we have instilled in the last couple of years is our energy and work rate. And at times when we are not at our best like on Saturday we hang in games and can nick points.

“The quality of our goals was exceptional. The players deserve credit because we went through a sticky patch not too long ago and people start questioning certain things.

“The guys do what we ask of them and they give us everything they have. We’ve had a bit of luck because I felt we played better when we lost 5-1 to Livi.” Despite coming out on top Murray still had words of consolation for opposing manager Mark Burchill as his Livingston side remain rooted to the bottom of the SPFL Championship.

He said: “I’m sure Livi will be feeling down in the dumps because they put a lot into the game, I know Mark well, I played with him at boys club level, he’s a really good guy and deserves a break.

“He has come into a really difficult situation at Livingston. We know how difficult this league is, on the flipside I don’t think too many people felt sorry for us when Livi beat us 5-1.”
