The Premier Sport Cup campaign kicked off to a damp start as Alloa succumbed to a Liam Buchanan goal. The Cowdenbeath striker lobbed home past Neil Parry after a poor mistake by the goalkeeper.
Alloa will feel hard done by as they thought they had equalised in the final minutes with Adam King drilling the ball into the bottom corner but an errant, air swing at the ball by offside Conor Sammon, was deemed to interfere with play and it was chopped off. Alloa had bright moments regularly throughout the first half and especially in the closing minutes but lacked the cutting edge to punish the Fife side. Boyd, Cawley, Robertson and Sammon all missing or being denied in crucial moments.
Great to see fans back in the stadium but frustrating not to secure anything from our season opener.
