    Wasps fightback for draw 

    Sunday, February 10, 2013 2:11:05 PM

    Alloa Athletic scored a last minute goal to earn an unlikely draw in a game the team never got going. Ayr United with their new transfer window signing - Liam Buchanan, Chris Smith, Neil MacGregor & Michael Donald were a different team from which "The Wasps" had faced earlier in the season. Ayr did take the lead against the run of play, but after going 2-0 in front it looked a long way back for Paul Hartley's side with the manager sitting in the stand, starting a four game touchline ban. A mistake in the Ayr defence gave Alloa a lifeline, Mitch Megginson pouncing to claw back the deficit. Ayr were reduced to ten men when Liam Buchanan dived in the box. Alloa pushed everything forward, but after Stephen Simmons and Darren Young had missed gilt edged chances to equalise it looked like " The Wasps" would lose their first game at Recreation Park since 15th September, 2012. However Ben Gordon's lopping header in the closing minute clinched a draw. There was one final escape, when Ayr United substitute David Winters was clear through on goal but Scott Bain diverted his shot past the post for a corner.
