    Massive win 

    Thursday, February 28, 2019 6:17:53 PM

    "The Wasps" won a massive three points at Dumfries, defeating Queen of the South 2-1 with a last minute winner at a ground the club had not won at since 19th April, 2003 when a Stevie Thomson scored the only goal of the game.

    Having been on a losing run, many people had again written Jim Goodwin's men off after the defeat by Partick Thistle had seen them move to the bottom of the league, but the Alloa players were out to prove all doubters once again.
     
    The first chance of the match fell to the home side with Andy Graham having to clear Lyndon Dykes shot off the line.

    Dario Zanatta was then unlucky when his netbound shot was pushed over the bar by Alan Martin in the Queen's goal, but the Alloa fans only had to wait for the corner to come in and captain Andy Graham vollied home at the near post.

    Queen of the South equalised after 59 minutes when Kyle Jacobs vollied home after Neil Parry had saved well from his initial header, although the QOS announcer confused everyone by announcing the goalscorer as Iain Wilson?

    Queen of the South were now looking the more likely side to score but the Alloa defence stood firm and with people looking at their watches Dario Zanatta broke clear down the left wing and sent over a peach od a cross for Jordan Kirkpatrick to head home the winning goal.

    Having been edged out in games we might have taken something from it was fitting to get a victory on this occasion. Dario Zanatta always looked capable of finding that bit of pace and his eye for goal found a winner for "The Wasps".
