    Wasps slip to 4th  

    Sunday, November 20, 2016 6:17:49 PM
    “The Wasps” slipped to fourth position in the league after Airdrieonians defeated Jim Goodwin’s side 2-1 at the Excelsior Stadium. This was a day which player/manager Jim Goodwin will want to forget, knowing he will be an easy target for the press. Having scored an own goal and getting sent off in the second half for a second bookable offence. The first half although never playing at their best, the half-time scoreline of 2-0 was cruel, given the visitors had tested the home keeper as often with efforts on goal, but Airdrie were more clinical in front of goal.

    However after being reduced to ten men after Jim Goodwin was red carded in the 52nd minute it could have been a game of damage limitation, but credit to the Alloa players who battled and at times were the best team in the second half. The sending off appeared to spur “The Wasps” who can take a lot of positives from their second half show. Scott Taggart scored his first goal for the club with a spectacular shot from outside the box but in the end they couldn’t find another last minute equaliser.
