    Wasps must do better 

    Sunday, August 27, 2017 4:28:15 PM
    This is a game "The Wasps" will not want to look back at, in the first half neither team created many clear cut chances but in the second half there was no doubting Airdrieonians deserved their victory. Decsisions can change matches and certainly the penalty for the opening goal looked harsh. In these games the opening goal has proved vital in games already this season. Kevin Cawley was very unfortunate not to score a great equaliser for "The Wasps" his netbound shot striking the post before the rebound was struck over the bar by the onrushing Scott Taggart.
    However most contentious decision in the match was the when Airdrieonians keeper Rohan Ferguson was not penalised for what clearly looked like he handled the ball outside his box?
    In the second half the home side began to get on top and always looked likely to increase their lead. Alloa manager Jim Goodwin introduced Kris Renton and young Celtic loanee PJ Crossan before the hour mark, PJ's pace and getting in behind their defence did begin to work before he pulled up with what looked like a hamstring injury, this reduced "The Wasps" to 10 players as all three substitutes had been made.
    With two minutes remaining Airdrie finally extended their lead when Sean McIntosh played a long ball through to Jake Hastie on the break and the young player sealed victory for Airdrieonians slipping the ball past Neil Parry in the Alloa goal.
