    12 March 2012 04:48:54

    The Wasps cosolidated their position at top spot in the league after brilliantly coming back from behind in local derby match against East Stirlingshire. With less than a minute from the kick off, "The Shire" stunned the home support with the opening goal, John Coughlin's side were playing with great confidence taken from winning their previous two games 6-3 against Peterhead and 2-0 against Berwick Rangers. Alloa gradually worked their way back into the game and were unfortunate to see a Ryan McCord goal ruled as offside, however Robbie Winters drew the sides level scoring his 1st goal for the club. Stevie May who had seen a shot come back off the post did get his 11th goal of the season three minutes before half-time. In the second half Alloa Athletic displayed some of their best attacking football of the season Ryan Harding scored his 1st goal for the club, then subsitutes Ross McCord and Craig Campbell added to the scoreline, making it 5-1 at a stage in the game the team looked like scoring in every attack. If East Stirling thought Paul Hartley taking off Stevie May would help their cause, Craig Campbell answered perfectly with a stunning goal fit to win any match.
