Dumbarton boss Jim Duffy has said Reghan Tumilty will be heading back to Morton following his loan spell with the Sons.

Tumilty has made 16 League One appearances this term, scoring three goals and grabbing two assists. He’s been a key player for Duffy as the former Ton boss pushes for the promotion play-offs.

Those hopes took a dent away to Falkirk as they lost 3-0 to the Bairns. Two goals from Declan McManus and Charlie Telfer means Dumbarton now sit four points off fourth spot following Montrose’s 1-0 win over East Fife.

Speaking after the game, Duffy explained his thoughts on the defeat and Tumilty’s situation: “Reghan’s loan deal isn’t getting extended. He’ll go back to Morton on Monday. He’s scored a couple of wonder goals for us and gave us great energy and commitment.

“He was a joy to work with but I spoke to Morton last Sunday who’ve said they are going to take him back. It’s not really a surprise but we’ll look to strengthen the squad.

“For the first hour we did really well. The second goal was big and that allowed Falkirk to dictate the rest of the game.

“From our point of view it deflates the players a little. The last 25 minutes was tough but up until then I was delighted. It’s a difficult time for us in terms of resources but Falkirk are a good side.”
