    Sunday, October 06, 2019 8:53:05 AM

    Playing in front of the BBC TV Cameras on Friday evening, Alloa Athletic proved just how good a team they can be and throughly deserved their vicory and all three points against league leaders, Dundee United.

    The winning goal came as early as the 18th minute and was a joy to watch, not just for the supporters at the Indodrill Stadium but in front of all the people watching live on BBC Scotland.

    Scott Taggart played a slide rule pass inside Dundee United defender Liam Smith and played in Kevin Cawley, who cut the ball back across the face of the box for Kevin O'Hara to score past United keeper Benjamin Stegrist.
    The Wasps were on top in the first half and should have gone further ahead, only a last ditch block by Troy Brown denied Iain Flannigan while Adam Brown had a shot saved and Kevin O'Hara shot just curled over the bar.

    Alloa pile on the pressure
    In the second half Dundee United had more possession and pressure but Alloa stood their ground, concentrated and were very competitive and always looked dangerous on the break with Adam Brown and Kevin O'Hara stretching the United defence.
    Indeed United keeper Benjamin Stegrist allowed a Mark Reynolds passback to go under his foot and he had to scramble back to clear the ball from crossing the line.
    So close to being 2-0

    Three minutes from the end of the game referee Greg Aitken showed Iain Flannigan a second yellow card on the evening after a foul on substitute Louis Appere but the defence stood resolute for a famous victory.
