Wasps on front foot
Sunday, February 26, 2017 5:52:48 PM
Two victories and six league points in our last two games have helped "The Wasps" move into a strong second place in the league and close the gap to only nine points behind leaders Livingston. Jim Goodwin's team carried on the tempo from last weeks victory at Hampden Park and scored an early goal for the second week in a row.

Andy Graham who had opened the scoring after only 3 minutes then added his second goal of the game after only 16 minutes. It was a great start but it could have been more with Airdrieonians lucky not to be further behind before Iain Russell gave them a lifeline five minutes later.

The visitors then had their best spell of the match prior to half-time, but a tactical switch in the second half bringing on Steven Hetherington in midfield in place of striker Greig Spence helped regain the balance of play back in favour of the home side. Both teams had chances in the second half and the Alloa supporters were delighted to see their team extend their lead over Airdrieonians in second place and now look forward to Tuesday evening when "The Wasps" face another huge match at The Indodrill Stadium, when ex Alloa Athletic manager brings his East Fife side who are currently unbeaten in their last ten league matches.
