    Up to 8th in League 

    Wednesday, April 10, 2019 4:51:53 PM

    Three back to back victories have moved "The Wasps" up into 8th position in the league and now give Jim Goodwin's team a realistic chance of retaining their place in the division after many had written them off even prior to the first game of this season.

    However this group of players just never throw the towel in and have picked up victories against Ross County, Falkirk and Greenock Morton in their past three league fixtures, which has put the team right back in the hunt to retain their Championship status, and send a few clubs into a real state of panic with just four games remaining.

    1-1 Game on
     
    At Cappielow on Tuesday night, "The Wasps" fell behind to a soft looking penalty, but great character and determination in the side, saw them draw level three minutes later, but not content with this went looking for a winner.

    At this stage of the season the manager was looking for all three points and his positivity was to be rewarded. With ten minutes left Kevin Cawley and Dario Zanatta combined well on the left flank and the ball into the box was eventually knocked over the line by Jack Hamilton to score his first goal for the club since joining on loan from Livingston in the January transfer window.

    In the final ten minutes Greenock Morton threw everything at the Alloa defence with Neil Parry looking at his best coming and collecting crosses and blocking any attempts at goal. Although nothing has been achieved at this stage already it has been a memorable season and one the plays and club can be proud of.
