    Back to back victories against Brechin City and Raith Rovers at Recreation Park, albeit one was a Scottish Cup replay and the other in the League, showing on their day Alloa Athletic can still look to defeat anybody in their league. Brechin City took an early lead through their top scorer Gary Twigg, netting his 10th goal of the season, but two goals in a five minute burst saw the game turn on it’s head and Alloa take control, Andy Ferguson was on hand to score the equaliser before Dougie Wilson crossed for Jamie Stevenson to volley home the goal which was to be the winner. In the second half Brechin City started to show why they had only lost one previous game in the league this season and pushed Alloa deeper into defence. Late in the game Alloa keeper Raymond Jellema was their hero when he saved Iain Diack’s spot kick after Chris Townsley had been adjudged to have handled the ball. Three important points for “The Wasps” which were the perfect Christmas present.
