Dumbarton put their league troubles behind them with a confidence-building 4-1 thrashing of East Stirling at the Bet Butler Stadium.
Andrew Graham opened the scoring for the home side when he latched onto a Scott Agnew cross to finish from close range.
The Shire equalised with one minute of normal time remaining in the first-half thanks to David Greenhill's powerful finish.
James Lister then restored the Sons lead a minute later with his seventh of the campaign, after heading home a Garry Fleming cross.
The visitors pushed for an equaliser but the game was over when Bryan Prunty netted his fifth goal of the season.
There was still time for a fourth, and Dumbarton found one with Alan Lithgow converting in the 89th minute to seal a superb victory.
