Duffy just doesn't see the point.

Byline: Dumbarton.......0 Morton......0 | Kenny MacDonald

Jim Duffy reckons his Morton side should have pocketed all three points after dominating their opening-day draw.

Dumbarton keeper Scott Gallacher pulled off a couple of stunning saves while Ton's mis-firing forwards failed to find the net.

Duffy said: "A point is not too bad but I am disappointed we didn't take all three."

Ton survived an early scare when Alastair Roy burst clear but he failed to fire home from 12 yards as Ton defender Ricki Lamie nudged him off his stride.

The visitors hit back with Michael Doyle in impressive form. He charged down the right and teased a ball towards the near post which Andy Murdoch stabbed inches wide.

Connor McManus then lashed a snapshot which was beaten out by Sons keeper Gallacher in 26 minutes.

Dumbarton went close to snatching the lead just after the break when Christian Nade crashed in a volley which was well saved by Derek Gaston.

Ton pushed for that elusive opener and Robert Thomson cracked in an angled drive in 67 minutes which keeper Gallacher did well to smother.

Next to have a go was Jai Quitongo but his low effort was saved by Gallacher at his near post.

Robert McHugh went close in 88 minutes with a close-range hooked shot but Gallacher did well to beat the ball out before he made a fabulous one-handed save from a Ross Forbes piledriver in stoppage time.

Sons chief Stevie Aitken said: "We made it difficult for Morton although they had two or three chances near the end."


DUFFY left frustrated
