    Brechin hold out for points 

    Thursday, March 21, 2013 11:57:38 AM

    Saturday's defeat against Brechin City was a sore one to took, given the chances "The Wasps" had to score and in general their play and commitment which deserved better. Brechin City went into the game on a rich vein of form, having only lost once in past 17 league games since Ray McKinnon took over, but it was Alloa who had the best chances - Alex Pursehouse clearing a Calum Elliot shot off the line, Michael Andrews denying Calum Gallagher after the youngster had broke through, another Calum Elliot effort all in the first half, however Brechin held firm and hit Alloa on the counter attack, Alan Trouten not for the 1st time this season, scoring against "The Wasps", back came Alloa with Michael Andrews being by far the busiest keeper, Garry Brady then cleared anther Calum Elliot effort off the line, the keeper again smothered an effort on the line and in the final minute when a chance came when the keeper missed a high cross Calum Elliot blasted high over the bar with the goal at his mercy, it just wasn't to be his day.
