    This was another huge win for the club, although for the winning goal fortune smiled on us on this occasion. The wind at times spoiled the game and it was the elements which helped Stevie Hetherington score direct from a corner kick in the second half which proved to be the only goal of the game.

    "The Wasps" started the game strongly but could not get that vital opening goal in the first half, although the woodwork did have to come to the rescue of the visitors, Queen of the South. Queen's ended the first half strongly and gradually grew into the game and Neil Parry in the Alloa goal had to look sharp to prevent "The Doonhammers" taking the lead.

    Jack Hamilton had a great opportunity to put "The Wasps" in front but his shot was saved by the Queen's keeper Jack Leighfield.

    Having got the vital goal through Steven Hetherington's corner going straight in, Alloa were dealt a huge blow minutes later when Andy Graham had his nose broken after being caught by a challenge by Lyndon Dykes.

    However at this stage in the season, the only statisic which was important was gaining another three league points as the club strive to retain their postition in the Championship next season. The team defended well and had the defence and Neil Parry to thank on this occasion and now know survival is in their own hands with only three league fixtures left this season.
