    Alloa pay penalty 

    Sunday, September 27, 2009 5:17:34 PM

    The Wasps suffered their first home defeat this season in the league, going down 1-0 to Arbroath, the second 1-0 defeat in a row for Allan Maitland's team. A penalty awarded after 28 minutes when John Grant handled a net bound Ian Dobbins shot, which resulted in a red card for the Alloa midfield player and an opportunity, which Bryan Scott took to open the scoring in this match. On a day when Alloa had already had their options depleted due to injury it was then an up hill task. Although Alloa did well in the second period Arbroath were content to hit on the break and had opportunities themselves to increase their lead, however with time added on young 16 year old substitute Jason Thomson was unfortunate not to snatch a point for the club when he struck the cross bar. On the day too many injuries were to cost the team dear, we need all players available and not out injured, to keep our momenteum going and to avoid inconsisent results.
