    Wasps gain vital 3 points 

    Sunday, September 29, 2013 3:51:43 PM

    "The Wasps" defeated league leaders Hamilton Accies to gain a vital three points, proving on their day they are a match for any of the sides we have played already this season in the new SPFL Championship. Hamilton in the first half, showed just how good a team they are and Paul Hartley's men had to show great concentration to keep the league leaders from scoring. The incident which was to change the game all appeared to be in slow motion, Jason Marr's netbound header went past the keeper and Alex Neil, instinctively saved the ball, proventing a goal, which was missed by the referee and far side linesman, after the Alloa players appealed and the referee took a tumble, the standside linesman confirmed what had happened - Alex Neil was then sent off and Ryan McCord scored the resultant penalty. In the second half the ten men of Hamilton still had their fair share of possesion but "The Wasps" used the extra width and space and took the game when possible to the vistors but were denied a cushion of a second goal, Kevin Cawley came closest but headed over from a good position. Iain Flannigan made his Alloa debut and fitted in well, Paul Hartley's side played football and defended well when required.
