IRN-BRU FIRST DIVISION:
AIRDRIE 1 DUMBARTON 2
Goals from Marc McCusker and Jim Lister earned Dumbarton victory over Airdrie at New Broomfield on Saturday.
Ryan Donnelly's fifth goal of the season put the Diamonds in front before the Sons strike pairing turned the game on its head by the interval.
The result saw Dumbarton, who notched up their fourth win in five games, draw level on points with Airdrie who continue to occupy the relegation play-off spot on goal difference.
But Ian Murray's men stay at the bottom of the table on account of having scored one goal less than the Diamonds.
Donnelly netted the opener in the 10th minute when he fired home Gregor Buchanan's headed knockdown from a Willie McLaren corner.
However, the Sons equalised midway through the half with McCusker's excellent first touch and finish, from a Lister flick on, too much for keeper Kenny Arthur.
And Dumbarton grabbed the lead in the 33rd minute. Scott Smith's low cross to the back post was squared by Mark Gilhaney for Lister to convert.
Airdrie had a lot of pressure after the break but spurned their best chance to make it 2-2 when McLaren's drive was blocked by Jamie Ewings.
