    Alloa Athletic manager Jim Goodwin once again highlighted the fact that his team never give in as they came back from a 2-0 deficit at half-time to clinch a merited draw having dominating the play in the second half, when remarkably Alloa keeper Neil Parry had not a save to make.

    Alan Trouten was once again the man to turn the game back in Alloa's favour, scoring the crucial first goal in the second half to give "The Wasps" a fighting chance. The game then turned on its head with the Dunfermline players looking visibly shaken and their fans starting to turn against them and their manager.
