    Cruel end to game 

    Sunday, August 18, 2013 12:54:46 PM

    A last gasp penalty winner for promotion favourites Dundee was a cruel end to a game "The Wasps" certainly deserved a point. Indeed having weathered strong Dundee pressure in the opening 20 minutes of the match, it was Paul Hartley's team who should have gone ahead, Andy Kirk crossed for Ryan McCord to time a great run into the box, but his header was tipped to safety by the home keeper. At this stage of the game Alloa were dominent and James Creaney went close with long range effort and then the Dundee defender, Iain Davidson was caught trying to play the ball out of play at the byeline and the alert Declan McManus robbed him and passing inside to Andy Kirk but his goal bound shot was deflected over for a corner. In the second period Dundee did come back into the game and Scott Bain produced a great save from Martin Boyle, "The Wasps" were sitting deeper but looked in no danger, until the penalty decission two minutes into stoppage time robbed them of a deserved point.
