    Wasps deserve victory 

    Sunday, August 31, 2014 1:57:41 PM
    Alloa Athletic achieved one of their best victories yesterday in defeating Hibernian, it was a great performance by “The Wasps” especially coming back from going behind after only fifteen minutes. Barry Smith’s team did well in the first half without any reward, they had showed great confidence and belief and had chances to equalise. However in the second half “The Wasps” always looked the much livelier side and playing at such a tempo they always looked dangerous. Ten minutes into the 2nd half the impressive, Liam Buchanan fired “The Wasps” level after visiting keeper Mark Oxley had parried Daryll Meggatt’s goal bound header. The home side’s attitude, work rate and fitness helped outplay and outfight the Easter Road side. The winning goal five minutes from the end was no more than the team deserved, after “Man of the Match” Kevin Cawley had been fouled on the edge of the area, substitute Iain Flannigan, who had only just came on the pitch fired an unstoppable free kick high into the corner of the net, a goal worthy of winning any game.
