    Alloa Athletic had to come back from being one goal down against local rivals Stirling Albion to keep going their unbeaten record against "The Binos" since 7th March, 2009. Once again Alloa proved as they had on numerous occasions last season their ability to come back from going a goal behind, such is their character and will to win.

    The Wasps made three changes from the team that had faced Hibernian at Easter Road, Chris Henry made his first competitive start, in place of Neil Parry who is still recovering from facial knock at Easter Road. Andrew Stirling and Liam Buchanan started in place of Adam Brown & Alan Trouten who were on the bench.
    The first half of this match was not one to look back on, although "The Wasps" had the bulk of the play it would be fair to say there were not a lot of chances on goal.
    The opening goal came six minutes in the second period when David Wilson curled home a beauty of a free kick to give the visitors the lead.

    Game on, Peter Grant introducing Alan Trouten just before the hour mark which was to prove pivital. Alloa were noe pushing forward and getting the ball into the box and looking far more dangerous. It was fitting that Kevin O'Hara would score the equaliser as he had been a threat to the Albion defence all evening.

    Stirling Albion introduced all three of their substitutions and were looking to manage the game out at 1-1, but "The Wasps" were looking to get a winner. Four minutes from time Andy Graham's netbound header was pushed out by Stirling Albion goalkeeper Cameron Binnie and Liam Buchanan pounced to dive home and net the rebound, 2-1 to "The Wasps".
