    Capitulation 

    Sunday, December 19, 2010 7:32:14 PM

    Airdrie United came back to snatch a victory in the final minute of Saturday's game against "The Wasps" to leave the home side wondering, how did they lose that game? The fact is Alloa Athletic need to be more ruthless and close out games, having started the game poorly the home side, after missing chances in the first half, took charge in the second period, Stuart Noble scoring his third goal in three games and Jim Lister scoring a header which should have been the winning goal. The Wasps had other opportunies to increase their lead and might have been given a penalty a descision which could have changed the game, Alloa were dominatant and should have went on to increase their lead. The introductioin of ex Alloa star Jamie Stevenson did however change the game, Airdrie were now having their share of possession and Alloa started to play out time. If losing a goal in the 89th minute was not bad enough, Airdrie struck again in the final minute to win all three points - the manner of the defeat the most distrubing aspect for the Alloa support.
