    Derby victory puts Wasps clear at top 

    Saturday, September 12, 2009 5:40:48 PM

    Alloa Athletic went three points clear at the top of the Irn Bru Second Division after a 1-0 victory over local rivals Stirling Albion. Alloa took the game to Allan Moore's side and after 13 minutes the impressive Andy Scott lobbed Albion keeper Scott Christie for the games only goal. In the second half Stirling Albion came back at "The Wasps" and David Crawford, once again this season showed his worth between the posts. However Alloa themselves had chances to extend their lead and Mark Gilhaney and Iain Russell were unfortunate with efforts later in the game which would have settled the result. Stirling Albion although having a lot of the ball in the second half will be disappointed with their efforts in front of goal. Alloa gave debuts to Kevin Welsh at left back from Hamilton Accies, and later in the game Iain Russell on loan from Morton who replaced Brian Carrigan in the second half, both players can be pleased with their efforts as Alloa Athletic set out to build on their excellent start in the league this season.
