    Alloa defeat Peterhead 

    Sunday, August 16, 2009 1:35:09 PM

    Alloa Athletic kept up their 100% league record with a 1-0 victory over Peterhead, who had also won their opening league fixture. Although Alloa were not at their best in this game which had little opportunities for either side, Andy Scott could have opened the scoring inside the first fifteen minutes, but his rising shot went over the bar. Prior to the kick-off Alloa had to reshuffle their squad when Chris Townsley went over on his ankle in the warm up, unfortunately for Chris it might be worse than looked and he might have damaged ligaments. The wind did nothing to help either side but when the goal did come it took a piece of individual skill from Andy scott to supply the opening which Stuart Noble was on hand to score. Indeed shortly afterwords Alloa looked to have doubled their advantage in a near carbon copy of the first goal but the standside linesman raised his flag for offside. This is the first time since season 1999/2000 that "The Wasps" have won their opening two league games of the season, a season in which the team won promotion to the First Division.
