    Arbroath grab points 

    Saturday, August 25, 2012 4:14:26 PM

    Alloa Athletic lost out in a five goal thriller today at Recreation Park which was a great advert for the SFL Second Division, although "The Wasps" will be wondering how they took nothing from the game? Both teams were keen to play open attacking football and "The Wasps" started by far the best with Kevin Cawley giving the home side a two goal advantage, at this stage another goal for the home side would have killed the game but just on half time Arbroath grabbed a lifeline when Derek Holmes snatched a goal to bring them back into the match. At half time Paul Sheerin made two tactical changes and opened the second half brighter. A defensive mistake in midfield giving the ball away gave Arbroath the chance to draw level before they snatched the lead after 63 minutes, however a mionute later referee George Salmond produced a straight red card to Arbroath substitute Daniel Rennie for a two footed tackle on Daryll Meggatt. Alloa were again back in the ascendancey but as hard as they tried they could not break down a resolute Arbroath defence, on another day Martin Grehan's diving header would have earned a desereved a point for "The Wasps" but it was not to be.
