    Title Anxiety 

    Saturday, April 17, 2010 5:34:16 PM

    The Wasps today suffered their first back to back defeat at Recreation Park this season, when they lost 2-1 to Dumbarton, who themselves still had an outside chance of sneaking into the end of season play-off's. In fairness Dumbarton started the best and had the Alloa defence under early pressure, an early booking after only 15 minutes was too prove costly for David McClune, Dumbarton opened the scoring after 31 minutes through David Winters and six minutes later McClune was issued with his second yellow of the day and Alloa were reduced to ten men, however in the second period Alloa did equalise after a good run into the box by young Declan McAvoy but he was impeded by Chris Smith, Andy Scott made no mistake from the spot, game on. At this stage Alloa had gained the upper hand and had chances to go ahead but ex Alloa keeper Michael White pulled off some outstanding saves to deny the Alloa attack. On 64 minutes ex Inverness CT striker Dennis Wyness scored after hesitancey in the Alloa defence. In the end the team showed great spirit but fell short in such an important game. We now have two games left, next Saturday away to Perhead and a final day home fixture against Cowdenbeath, games the team will surely need to win to give themselves a chance of winning the title. However with Stirling Albion winning 3-1 at Ochilview today our local rivals know they could win the title if they remain unbeaten in their final four matches. It has been a great season for "The Wasps" but we now need one final push if we are to win the title.
