Sons' hopes hit by Rovers
Dumbarton's survival hopes suffered a blow as they went down 2-1 at home to Raith.
The visitors took the lead after 14 minutes when Greig Spence nodded in after a good knock-down from Brian Graham.
Grant Murray came close to doubling the advantage shortly afterwards but failed to guide his header the right side of the post.
Rovers continued to press and Stephen Grindlay did well to keep out Grant Anderson's effort with a smart save.
Anderson and Joe Cardle were next to test Grindlay before The Sons levelled in the 70th minute.
Gilhaney produced a neat finish from the edge of the area following some good work by James Lister.
However, they went behind for the second time five minutes later when Graham produced a neat finish inside the box.
Ian Murray's side are just two points above the bottom two following a third straight defeat.
