    "The Wasps" collected another three massive league points on Saturday, defeating league leaders Ross County 1-0 for their seventh victory in this season's SPFL Championship, once again proving there is very little between the sides in this season's league.

    Alloa showed plenty of attacking threat and took the game to the league leaders. Jack Aitchison was able to make his Alloa Athletic full debut having returned after Scotland Under 19 duties and he certainly caused "The Staggies" plenty of problems.

    "The Wasps" had great pace on the attack and Dario Zanatta gave them a deserved lead on 33 minutes with a fantastic solo goal to break the deadlock.

    As half-time approached the only disappointment was the fact the scoreline was only 1-0 as "The Wasps" could have had another couple of goals.
     
    It had been a tough week for Jim Goodwin's team playing Dundee Utd, Inverness CT and Ross County back to back.

    Ross County brought on ex Wasp Ross Stewart to add to their attacking options as they looked to get an equaliser, but Neil Parry was in superb form and was equal to anything in front of him to secure his eighth shut-out for the season.

    The victory for "The Wasps" was well deserved and helped to repay their loyal supporters who travel all over the country including the midweek trip on Tuesday night to Inverness to give them their backing.
     
    The players have done great to stay in the mix and now only five points seperate the bottom five clubs.
