    Anthony Bolger equalisesAlloa Athletic will be disappointed not the have collected all three points at Recreation Park on Saturday, playing against Brechin City the league leaders who were without Rory McAllister & Charlie King. Brechin started strongly and Kevin Byers put them ahead with a strike from  yards after only 22 minutes, but Alloa showed a positive reaction to going behind and played some excellent football. Michael Dunlop equalised after 36 minutes scoring his 1st goal for "The Wasps" and the team went off at half-time on the acendancy. Ten minutes into the second half, experienced Brechin keeper Craig Nelson allowed Bryan Prunty's shot to slip past him for to put Alloa in front. However Alloa need to be able to see out games and still were playing good football but with no end product which a third goal would have sealed the points. Brechin City's young substitute Anthony Bolger then equalised with a strike from 2 yards which sailed over keeper Stephen Robertson. this was a game I'm sure the three points were there for the taking but Alloa although playing some good football will need to learn to be more clinical in finishing games off.
