The Wasps were always dangerous opponents and played good football, especially in the second half, which made the Dee’s dominant performance all the more pleasing.

Alloa Athletic’s Season So Far

Alloa started their season with a 3-3 draw at home with Elgin City in the Betfred Cup but lost the bonus point in the shoot out and followed that up with a visit to Premiership Hibernian where the lost 2-0. However wins over Stirling and Arbroath in their next two games saw Alloa finish runners-up in their group but failed to qualify as one of the best runners-up.

In the Ladbrokes Championship The Wasps opened their league campaign with a 1-1 draw at home to Partick but crashed 4-1 in their next game away to Morton. Arbroath got revenge for their League Cup defeat with a 1-0 at The Indodrill Stadium but they reversed that scoreline to win 1-0 at Queen of the South the following week to get off the mark.

After knocking Dunfermline out of the Tunnocks Caramel Wafer Challenge Cup with a 1-0 win, Alloa went down 2-1 at Dens and then lost 4-1 to at home to Ayr.

However Alloa bounced back with a 1-1 draw at Dunfermline and followed that up with a superb 1-0 home win over Dundee United live on the BBC Scotland channel.

Alloa then exited the Challenge Cup with a 3-0 loss at Inverness but a week later drew 2-2 at the Caledonian Stadium and then in January lost 3-2 at home to Inverness in the Scottish Cup.

Alloa continue to pick up vital points in the Championship in their request for survival and defeated Dunfermline twice before Christmas and drew twice with relegation rivals Partick before and after the festive period.

In January Alloa defeated high flying Arbroath and then in February picked up valuable points with draws against the top two Inverness and Dundee United and against Morton after coming down from 4-2 down at Cappielow but lost 2-0 to Ayr on Saturday.
