    Wasps gain back to back victories 

    11 March 2018 18:29:25

    In recent times Hampden Park has been one of grounds where "The Wasps" have a good record of victories, with their last defeat at the National Stadium in Season 2008/09, Saturday's 2 -1 victory now extends that winning sequence to seven victories in last seven games, lets hope any doubts over the National Stadium, Hampden Park with Queen's Park ownership will see "The Spiders" still allowed to play at Hampden Park.

    Few Alloa Athletic supporters could have predicted "The Wasps" line-up on Saturday against Queen's Park, with manager Jim Goodwin electing to make four changes to the side that had won 5-3 in midweek against Arbroath. The game itself in the first half had few chances for the sides to open the scoring in a day when the wind and rain appeared to take over. Kris Renton appeared to have a decent penalty claim in a otherwise disappointing first half which ended goalless.

    The opening chance in the second half fell to PJ Crossan who was unfortunate to see his chip shot charged down by ex Wasp Michael White in goal for Queen's. The opening goal by Aideen Keena, currently on loan from Hearts came out of the blue with the striker netting from fully 40 yards to bring the game to life.

    Alloa's reaction was positive and thirteen minutes later Callum Crane scored a great goal in one of the best moves of the match, game on!

    The game already had two great goals but in Jordan Kirkpatrick's winning goal there could be no doubt in the quality of creating the opening and executing the winning strike, to the joy of the Alloa support at Hampden.
