    Fightback too late 

    Sunday, October 19, 2014 5:20:12 PM

    The Wasps paid the penalty for not scoring when on top against Cowdenbeath in the first half after Liam Buchanan and Stephen Simmons had both seen efforts saved by Robbie Thomson in the visitors goal, he was to continue to be even more difficult to beat in the second half. Since our last game at Central Park which “The Wasps” won 3-0, Cowdenbeath manager Jimmy Nicholl has brought in Callum Gallagher, who had a spell at Alloa last season, on loan from Rangers and Kudus Oyenuga on loan from Dundee United and they caused “The Wasps” defence scoring all three goals between them. Manager Barry Smith threw everything into attack after the visitors went 3-1 ahead after a crazy minute spell. Twelve minutes from the end top goalscorer Greig Spence headed home from an Eddie Ferns corner. The visitors then withstood late Alloa pressure, with Ben Gordon and Michael Doyle both seeing goal bound efforts saved by Robbie Thomson.
