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 last weekend drew again 2-2, this time with Queen of the South.
