    Need to take chances 

    Sunday, September 22, 2013 1:28:00 PM

    Football can be a very unforgiving sport and in the new SPFL Championship, Alloa Athletic know they will need to take their chances as they strive to consolate their position this season in a higher division. This was a very open, hard fought game which turned in the home sides favour after Alloa striker Andy Kirk, missed a great opportunity with 16 minutes of the game remaining which would have put "The Wasps" back in front at a stage in the game when they were looking the more likely side to go on and win the points. There will be no easy games in this league and Raith Rovers will have known they were in a game, but the players once again could not be faulted for effort and will need to pick themselves up for the visit next Saturday of league leaders Hamilton Accies to Recreation Park.

    Kevin Cawley puts Alloa 1-0 ahead
     Joe Cardle ball across face of goal ends in net 1-1
    Daryll Meggatt tripped by Grant Anderson, Penalty
    Ryan McCord scores penalty 2-2
    Andy Kirk misses great chance at back post
    Declan McManus clips shot behind David McGurn
    Ex Wasp Dougie Hill clears McManus shot off the line
    Calum Elliot's diving header puts Raith Rovers 3-2 ahead
    Joe Cardle makes it 4-2 in time added on
