    Dundee clinch vital points 

    Sunday, April 27, 2014 2:27:15 PM

    After losing to Paul Hartley’s promotion seeking Dundee yesterday, “The Wasps” will need to go to the final game of the season to try and secure their SPFL Championship position for next season in a game against Falkirk, who themselves still have an outside chance of clinching the Championship depending on other results. Alloa were the better side early on against Dundee but could not get that vital opening goal, before Christian Nade opened the scoring for the visitors three minutes before half-time. Again, Alloa opened the second half brightly but the penalty on 71 minutes, when Daryll Meggatt was harshly adjudged for deliberate handball and in a double blow, was then red carded for his second booking of the game. “The Wasps” will now face Falkirk at the New Falkirk Stadium next Saturday, while Cowdenbeath will face Queen of the South at Central Park with “The Wasps” one point ahead and better goal difference of seven goal, Alloa are – 15 and Cowdenbeath – 22.
