    Black day at Elgin 

    Sunday, February 19, 2012 4:10:00 PM

    Alloa Athletic manager Paul Hartley knows his side are capable of far better than their display at Borough Briggs against Elgin City on Saturday, to be honest "The Wasps" were as poor as they have played this season, going behind inside the first minute, but credit to Elgin City they were clinical. The home side gained in confidence from the opening goal, although  Alloa had lots of possesion they never had a cutting edge and needed to be more direct at times. Ross McKinnon was unfortunate to see his free kick strike the cross bar and at the start of the second half Michael Doyle after showing great pace was clear in the box but shot wide. Elgin's third goal was when the home side soaked up Alloa pressure and caught the visitors on the break to kill off the game at 3-0, Elgin took their chances in the game while on the day Alloa had too many players who didn't perform. We are still in a strong position in the league with the old cliche of one game at a time so relevent just now.
