    Alloa extend unbeaten run 

    Sunday, January 13, 2019 1:47:32 PM

    Another good performance from "The Wasps" especially in the second half where they bossed the game, 2-1 scoreline makes game look far closer than was, Morton only came into game in a last five minute flurry at end of game, a well deserved victory albeit a bizzare winning goal.

    Now the tenth time "The Wasps" have come back from going behind this season and extends their unbeaten run to six games going back to losing last minute goal to Ross County on 1st December, 2018.

    Ryan Scully brings down Alan Trouten for penalty
    Alan Trouten scores 15th goal of season, 1-1
     
    Against the run of play in the first half Morton took the lead and it was that man Chris Millar scoring his 4th goal of the season, 3 in the league all against Alloa. The biggest talking point of first half was just before half-time when Morton keeper Ryan Scully punched Alan Trouten in the box but no penalty given.
     
    It had been a frustrating first half for "The Wasps" and again it took a goal against us and half-time talk from manager Jim Goodwin to turn the game back in Alloa's favour. Alloa equalised from the spot in 66th minute after Ryan Scully had brought down Alan Trouten and he slotted home his fifth penalty from open play this season his 9th in succession he has scored for "The Wasps" including penalty shoot outs in Betfred & Irn Bru Cups. 
     
    Andy Graham heads across goal for winning goal
    Dario Zanatta celebrates bizarre winning goal
     
    "The Wasps" winning goal was bizarre, Andy Graham's headed across goal and Rory McKeown tried to clear, his clearance struck Dario Zanatta and spun towards the goal, where Kerr Waddell then sliced his clearance into the net for an own goal.
    Greig Spence great chance to increase scoreline.
     
    After this Alloa had two great chances to increase their margin as they caught Morton on the break, substitute Greig Spence being in great position and just after this was blocked Iain Flannigan's net bound shot was saved by Ryan Scully.
