    Wasps stun Stirling 

    Tuesday, March 23, 2010 8:19:55 PM

    This was another crucial victory, remarkably the fourth against Stirling Albion this season, which is the first time either side has won all four league encounters in one season, the last time Alloa won all league games in same season was back in season 1986/87 season when Dom Sullivan was the Alloa manager, although the sides at that time only met three times a season. Manager Allan Maitland still had injury worries prior to this match with six first team players unavailable, prompting him to bring in Declan McAvoy from Hamilton Accies on loan till the end of the season. Stirling Albion took an early lead when Andy Graham headed them in front, but Gary Carroll scored with a top class strike four minutes later. Stirling had a lot of possesion in the second half but just as the game lokked to be heading for a 1-1 draw, Alloa again showed their fighting spirit to win the game in the final minute. Jason Thomson was unfortunate to see his effort deflected for a corner and Scott Walker was on hand to head his first goal of the season to win the game for "The Wasps".
