    Queen's snatch victory 

    Saturday, September 29, 2012 6:49:33 PM

    Alloa manager Paul Hartley was disappointed his side took nothing from a game in which they contributed so much and competed well. Queen of the South have already proved this season that they have set the benchmark for this season now leading the league and the still the only side unbeaten in the league this season. Kevin Cawley passed a fitness test and lead the line for “The Wasps”, the game was fairly even early on with best chances for the visitors falling to Ryan McCord and Martin Grehan who after getting into good position delayed his shot and the opportunity was lost. Scott Bain was in wonderful form pulling off three wonderful saves to keep the scores level at half-time. Queen’s opened the second half strongly but Alloa’s defence looked strong. Then for the second time this season Nicky Clark was to be the man who mattered, scoring while Alloa were having a good spell in the game after his initial shot had been blocked. Paul Hartley introduced all three Alloa substitutes in an effort to grab an equaliser but Queen’s held out for a narrow 1-0 victory, Kevin Cawley had an opportunity late in the game but it was not to be on this occasion.
