    Wasps turn on style 

    Sunday, September 02, 2012 5:08:08 PM
    Alloa Athletic bounced back from the disappointment of losing 3-2 last week at home to Arbroath, by ending a run of over five years without a win at Glebe Park. This win and display was good as "The Wasps" have promised all season and no one could doubt the style and good football the team displayed in handing Brechin City their 1st defeat this season at home in the league. After dominating the first half, Paul Hartley's side could have been stunned by Brechin City taking the lead when striker Andy Jackson scored his sixth goal in six games, but their response was positive, Robert Thomson bulleting home the equaliser in 65 minutes before, man of the match, Kevin Cawley deserevedly put the visitors in front. Alloa threatened to increase their lead in every attack and looked to add to their tally. Martin Grehan looked like a man on a mission when he came off the bench, feeling aggrieved that he had not started the match he looked hungry and with two minutes left scored a memorable solo goal to win the match. This was a great team display against a Brechin City side who will not lose too many games at Glebe Park this season, but on the day Alloa Athletic were clearly the better team.
