    23 July 2018 16:54:14

    The Wasps were victorious at Tannadice, winning 4-3 on penalties, but their second half display was worthy of victory within the ninety minutes, by the end of the game it was Dundee United who were hanging on with "The Wasps" going so close to clinching the winning goal.

    Iain Flannigan's late effort is cleared off the line
     
    In was Jim Goodwin's side who started the match the brightest with the Dundee United team looking very nervous. Greig spence flicking an effort into the side netting. United did look dangerous at set pieces in the box and Nicky Clark was unfortunate with a header which struck the woodwork before Frederic Frans bulleted a header past Neil Parry to give the home side the lead. Csaba Laszlo then watched his side have their best spell in the game, although Alan trouten nearly caught their keeper out of his goal prior to half time.
     
    In the second half "The Wasps" took the game to their opponents showing great spirit and never gave up. They got their reward with eleven minutes left when Jake Hastie, who had been a torn in the flesh of the Dundee United defence with Frederic Frans giving away the penalty.
    Jake Hastie fouled for penalty

    Alloa keep on going "Keeping Believing" and could have won the game in the regulation 90 minutes. Jake Hastie again broke into the United box and was brought down, but on this ocassion the referee awarded a free kick on the edge of the box.
    No penalty given!
