Dumbarton manager Stevie Aitken was delighted after his side picked up another comeback win against Inverness Caledonian Thistle on Saturday, winning 2-1.

It was the first ever league meeting between the sides, but it was a familiar story for Dumbarton when Connor Bell put the visitors in front.

But a Dimitris Froxylias volley and Sam Wardrop scoring his first senior goal to give the hosts three points and despite staying seventh in the table, they now sit seven clear of Brechin City.

It’s early days yet, but Aitken was happy with another three points for the part-timers.

He said: “We’ll enjoy the win but we won’t get carried away at this stage of the season. There’s a long way to go. That’s the last four games undefeated.

“We’re moving in the right direction, and that’s pleasing to see.”

Aitken made four changes to the starting line up from last week’s 2-1 win over Brechin City, with Christian Nade, Andy Dowie, Kyle Hutton and Mark Stewart coming into the side.

Despite the changes, it was the same old Dumbarton, as a slow start and sloppy play from Kyle Hutton let Liam Polworth in.

The midfielder passed to Bell, who fired past Scott Gallacher to open the scoring.

The manager added: “We need to stop shooting ourselves in the foot.

“It’s another mistake for their goal but they started on the front foot and put us under a lot of pressure. You can see the quality they have in their team, but once we started it at half-time and I thought the second half we were great.”

Inverness could have walked in at half-time with a bigger lead, but spurned several chances in front of goal.

Sons, for the second week in a row, sealed another comeback win.

Froxylias latched onto Stewart’s header to power his volley home after 48 minutes.

The midfielder then almost doubled his tally on 63 minutes, his free-kick being clawed away by Owain Fon-Williams, but Sam Wardrop was on hand to tap in the rebound.

And despite going a goal down, Aitken was thrilled with the fighting nature his side showed.

He said: “It just shows what the dressing room is like, they have a great spirit in there. That’s something that we try and pride ourselves on because we’re part-time. We’re underdogs in most games.”

Dumbarton’s next game is away to Livingston on Saturday.
