    Alloa win at Forthbank 

    Sunday, November 08, 2009 4:46:26 PM

    Alloa Athletic defeated Stirling Albion at Forthbank Stadium, their first victory at Forthbank since Allan Maitland took over as team manager in January, 2006, the last time an Alloa Athletic side had won at Forthbank Stadium was back on 27th August, 2005 when "The Wasps" won 2-1 with goals from Robert Sloan & David Greenhill. This was a game Alloa needed to win, knowing defeat would put the team nine points behind Stirling Albion and the players certainly gave their all. The only goal of the game came after 22 minutes when Stuart Noble was fouled in the box and Andy Scott scored his 2nd winning goal of the season against Stirling Albion and their manager Allan Moore who had decided not to sign Andy after trial matches with Stirling Albion after being released by Motherwell. Alloa had other opportunities to score through John Grant and Stuart Noble, but with only two left Mark Brown missed the best chance of the match after being put through by Brian Carrigan, but the advancing Scott Christie saved and the Alloa fans had to wait till the referee played five minutes extra time before exebrating such an important win for the side.
