Fu­ri­ous Aitke­nis un­happy with Sons

Lennox Herald - - THE BACK PAGE -

Dum­bar­ton boss Ste­vie Aitken slammed his side’s “dis­gust­ing ”per­for­mance against Stran­raer — de­spite see­ing them book an Irn-Bru Cup quar­ter-fi­nal spot.

Goals from Craig Barr and Mark Ste­wart put the Sons through, with Stephen Okoh fir­ing a late con­so­la­tion for Stran­raer.

But Sons boss Aitken was far from pleased with his team’s per­for­mance.

Fum­ing, he said after the match: “Am I happy? No, I’m not. It was a dis­gust­ing sec­ond-half per­for­mance from my team.

“We weren’t good enough, not by a long shot. We’ve set stan­dards in the two years I’ve been here and we fell well be­low them.”

While the gaffer was left un­happy, the re­sult helps Dum­bar­ton con­tinue on their most suc­cess­ful Irn Bru Cup per­for­mance to date.

Dum­bar­ton will now face Raith Rovers at home on Novem­ber 11.
