Dumbarton manager Jim Duffy hailed Reghan Tumlity’s ‘unbelievable’ equaliser as his side battled back from a goal down on three occasions to win 4-3 at Station Park against Forfar.

Tumlity latched on to a precise ball to smash an effort in off the underside of the crossbar to level things up at 3-3, which Duffy believes gave his side the belief to go on and win the game.

PJ Crossan netted the winner with 20 minutes to go and the Sons gaffer believes his side were good value for their three points.

He said: “If you take something from any game, especially away from home, you’re not too disappointed.

“I felt we deserved at least the point and we were the team the most likely to win it, but you’re not wanting to do anything silly and undo all your hard work.

“It was an unbelievable equaliser from Reghan.

“It’s just one of those goals that at any level of football people would be waxing lyrical about it.

“It was a fantastic pass from Kyle and to have the courage to hit it early was unbelievable.

“Most people would try and bring it down and cross it but he’s just waited for it dropping over his shoulder and has decided to go for it.

“The type of goal it was, and with the energy it gave the players, I think they thought that we could go on and win this.”

The 60-year-old was delighted to see Dumbarton battle their way back into the game on three separate occasions on Saturday, but admits he would prefer his side didn’t get themselves in the situation in the first place.

He added: “We went a goal behind to Clyde and even a few weeks ago when we lost to East Fife, we came from two goals down so we’ve done it already this season.

“The attitude and belief of the players that we can get back into the game is something that we have, but we do make it difficult for ourselves because the goals we gave away were very cheap and avoidable.”

The Sons are away from home once again this weekend as they travel to Raith Rovers before returning home against Stranraer on December 28.
