    Not getting rewards 

    Sunday, August 12, 2018 12:10:54 PM

    Defeats in our opening two league games of the new season have been hard to take, losing such a late goal at Dingwall and looking on top in the second half yesterday at home against Greenock Morton before Chris Millar unleashes a goal fit to win any game. The Alloa players are not getting the results their efforts merit at present but at the end of the day everybody knows it is goals that count.

    Manager Jim Goodwin knows this season was never going to be easy and is working tirelessly to bring in new faces to strenghen his squad, knowing we will need to be even better than last season to make things happen and silence the doubters who are expecting Alloa to struggle.
     
    Ryan Scully at full stretch to foil Jake Hastie
     
    In this league chances are going to be limited, but there was little between the teams yesterday, especially in the second half when "The Wasps" dominated possession but lacked the killer punch in last third of the pitch. Jake Hastie was a consistent threat on the left flank of the pitch driving at the Morton defence, but we needed to get an equalising goal when we were on top in the second period.
     
    Greig Spence fouled in box by Rory McKeown
     
    Indeed the turning point could have been when Greig Spence was flattened in the penalty box by Morton defender Rory McKeown which looked a very strong case for a penalty. Having survived this scare Chris Millar's second goal of the game with ten minutes left was a body blow, at that stage against the run of play but a fantastic strike.
