    Draw at Central Park 

    Saturday, August 22, 2009 7:08:08 PM

    Alloa Athletic fought out a 1-1 draw at Central Park against Danny Lennon's Cowdenbeath side. Cowdenbeath had the best of the first half which turned early in the game when Stuart Noble had to leave the find with a suspected dislocation to his shoulder, with Stuart Noble off and Brian Carrigan missing the game through illness, "The Wasps" missed their presence up front. Gareth Wardlaw scored an excellent goal for the home side after half an hour, but Alloa came back to equalise through Andy Scott just before half-time. Alloa opened more brightly in the second period but in the end a draw was a fair result, Cowdenbeath did end the gamestrongly but David Crawford stood firm in the Alloa goals. After the match, Alloa trialist, Mark Gilhaney signed for the club, while Stuart Noble's injury might not be as bad as feared and will be given every opportunity for Tuesday nights game against Dundee United.
