    Alloa pay penalty 

    Saturday, March 07, 2009 7:46:19 PM

    Alloa lost out today against local rivals Stirling Albion in a game they didn’t play badly, but failed to take chances in front of goal which ultimately saw them take nothing from the game. Stuart Noble opened the scoring for the home side after only five minutes after Brown Ferguson had burst into the box and supplied the telling pass. The turning point of the game, was when Stirling Albion were awarded a penalty in the 54th minute, a decision which Alloa certainly felt hard done by. However when they conceded a second goal four minutes later they still seemed to be thinking about the loss of the first goal. Pat Scullion did draw the match level again with his first goal for “The Wasps” but then Alloa conceded a third goal, which was to prove the winner from their own corner kick. Still Alloa looked like they would draw level but in their best chance Brown Ferguson headed narrowly past. It was a great advert for football and a game many would think Alloa did not deserve to lose but they need to take chances when presented and stop losing avoidable goals at the other end. Next week “The Wasps” will be desperate to get back on track at home against Arbroath, in a real six pointer match.
