    Alloa pay penalty 

    24 March 2013 15:50:00

    The Wasps went down to league leaders Queen of the South, by virtue of a late disputed penalty, indeed they looked to have cause for disappointment when they, themselves were denied a penalty just minutes after the Queen's award. Certainly Paul Hartley's side did not deserve to lose this game, Queen's will certainly be relieved to be going back to Palmerston with full points. Queen's took the lead five minutes before half-time, when top scorer Nicky Clark, showed how dangerous Queen's can be even although the home side had the best chances to go ahead. Kevin Cawley desrvedly heads "The Wasps" level just before the hour mark, Calum Elliot looked to have given the home side the lead but remarkably his chip shot was hooked off the line at the last minute. Calum Elliot again had an opportunity to put "The Wasps" in the lead but his shot, which had beaten Queen's keeper Robinson struck the crossbar. Queens survived again when Martin Grehan struck a great shot, which the keeper turned over the bar. Then with only five minutes left Derek Young went down in the box and Daryll Meggatt was adjudged to have fouled him for the winning penalty. After this was the handball in the other box which the referee missed and Alloa ended the game empty handed.
