    The Wasps are now unbeaten in their last four SPFL Championship fixtures and although they came back from being 2-0 down on Saturday against Queen of the South they were disappointed they didn't collect all three points.

    Alloa lost the toss and played towards the Clackmannan Road in the first half, as always in all Championship matches the first goal is so important, and the best chance of the first period just on 30 minutes could have seen the home side go ahead, Kevin O'Hara's header was blocked and then Kevin Cawley's shot was blocked by defender Kevin Holt, it broke free and Kevin Holt blocked for the second time on the line. Three minutes later it was Queen's who took the lead after no other than Stephen Dobbie broke into the box and fired low into the bottom corner of the net. If this wasn't bad enough ex Wasp Jack Hamilton headed home a minute later to give the visitors an unlikely 2-0 lead.

    Having played a lot of good football "The Wasps" paid the price for a lap of concentration for a minute and not being more clinical in front of goal. Manager Peter Grant introduced Liam Buchanan at half-time who had played so well and scored at Inverness the previous week and it proved fruitful. Alan Trouten played his way into the opposition box and scored his eighth goal of the season.

    Just as Queen's had inflicted in the first half, "The Wasps" were then to equalise within a minute, Kevin O'Hara firing home to level the scoring.

    Both managers could look back to what could have been in a four goal thriller, the caharacter of the Alloa Athletic players could never be questioned and a draw was the minimum the deserved out of the fixture.
