    More late drama 

    Sunday, September 17, 2017 3:57:56 PM

    A late goal denied "The Wasps" full points against an Ayr United side at Somerset Park who were tipped for promotion and started the season on fire. "The Wasps" were to lose the opening goal for the fourth game in a row against a side who were looking to bounce back after losing to league leaders Raith Rovers the previous week. After being disappointed at losing a bad goal the Alloa players response was positive and they took the upper hand in the game and scored a deserved equaliser, when Frank McKeown deflected Jon Robertson's shot into the net.

    Kevin Cawley put "The Wasps" in front with his 49th competitive goal for the club and his third goal in last three games with a header which went in a t the top right hand side of the goal.

    jamie Adams the pulled a goal back for the home side to draw the sides level again before his celebrations were cut short when referee Euan Anderson awarded Alloa a penalty when he was adjudged  to have handled a Frank McKeown header in the box, Scott Taggart coolly stepped forward and put "The Wasps" back in front at 3-2.

    However just like last week there was still late drama in the game when Lawrence Shankland equalised for the home side four minutes into time added on and although it felt like a defeat losing such a late equaliser we came here to win and came so close, it was a hugely encouraging performance and there were plenty of positives. The squad is still getting to know each other after all the changes in the summer but they can take great credit from this display.
