Dumbarton defender Dougie Hill says Sons should have taken three points on Saturday against Livingston on Saturday.

The Sons drew level with 14 minutes to go, Tom Walsh’s strike cancelling out Alan Lithgow’s first half strike.

But with six minutes to go, Craig Halkett’s header gave Livi all three points.

And the centre-back was unable to hide his disappointment.

He said: “It’s frustrating, the first half wasn’t good enough from the standards we set ourselves.

“The second half is as well as we’ve played all season. When we scored I thought there was only going to be one winner. I don’t think they merited it to be honest.”

The 32-year-old moved from fellow Championship part-timers Brechin City in the summer.

Despite the Glebe Park outfit offering Hill a deal, he decided to move to The Rock.

After playing for Alloa in 2015-16, where the the Wasps only picked up four wins in the entire league campaign, Hill was keen to avoid the same fate again.

He added: “I played against Livingston last year and they played nice football, they were very direct this year, and we didn’t expect that.

“I’m delighted to be back in the Championship playing in a team that’s competitive in every game, that’s where we want to be, we want to be as high up the league as we can and we shouldn’t fear anyone.

“I think last year was as good as it gets for me at Brechin on the high after the promotion.

“I played in the team with Alloa and we just weren’t competitive and I want to be competitive in every game.

“I felt I had more of a chance of being competitive in every game and winning games here than I did there.

“It might not work out that way but that’s what I felt at the time.

“I had a really good time at Brechin and I really enjoyed myself, but you have to leave on a high sometimes.”
