    Fightback too late 

    Sunday, January 22, 2017 7:06:35 PM

    The Wasps hopes of progressing in this season's William Hill Scottish Cup looked to be dashed after going 3-0 behind early in the second half to SPFL Championship side Dunfermline Athletic, however once again Jim Goodwin's men fought back to 3-2 after Greig Spence scored his 18th goal of the season for a tense finish with hopes of a reply which looked unlikey earlier in the match. Alloa's last opportunity fell to captain Graeme Holmes, who had been outstanding in midfield, his net bound shot however in injury time struck Dunferline Athletic player Nat Wedderburn and was cleared upfield and "The Pars" progressed to the fifth round where they will now meet Hamilton Accies.

    Both Alloa Athletic's recent signing Frank McKeown and substitute Stefan McCluskey can be pleased with their contribution - Stefan McCluskey scoring on his debut and Frank McKeown being named sponsors "Man of the Match".

    Special mention must also go the Kevin Cawley who made his 200th first team appearance for the club in a game once again he gave everything.
