    Sore Derby defeat 

    Sunday, November 15, 2015 3:24:47 PM

    Yesterday’s derby defeat to neighbours Falkirk was one of “The Wasps” worst displays of the season, against a team who are full of confidence and playing some of their best football of the season, unfortunately once we lost the first goal we were on the back foot and Falkirk took control of the game. It was difficult for the Alloa fans to watch and a day we need to put behind us. The display did improve in the second half, Mark Williams firing a great shot, which was saved before Steven Hetherington just failed to connect after Robbie Crawford’s effort just missed the back post. The arrival of young Michael Hardie and Scott Hynd was a positive move, with Scott Hynd making an immediate impact, his excellent shot was saved by Danny Rogers, but it injected some tempo into the Alloa side which now will face second top Hibernian at the Indodrill Stadium next Saturday. Admission £ 18, Over 65s & U16’s £ 9, Season Tickets are valid for the match v. Hibernian. Tickets are on sale at Alloa Leisure Bowl Monday – Friday: 6.30 am to 9.00 pm, Saturday: 9.00 am to 5.00 pm & Sunday: 9.00 am to 7.00 pm.
