Thanks to Stu for this.
Funny old game the fitba’ Sons didn’t play nearly as well as they did on Saturday but got a 3-1 victory for their efforts.
Centre back Ben Gordon put the home side ahead with a header from a cross by trialist David Winters. After the break Sons maintained the pressure and young Allan Cook hit a peach of a free kick from about 20 yards to make it 2-0
Ross Clark soon made it three with a penalty which saw Alloa defender Scott Walker notch a second yellow card. From that point Alloa with ten men came back into the game and Sons suddenly lost their belief. The game became very scrappy and the Alloa consolation goal was such a stramash that the announcer couldn’t even give a scorer. I think it came off a Sons defender.
A bit scrappy and not that convincing but a win’s a win and it was done against the top side in the division.
Amongst the pre match chat was a comment from Sons fan Simon Barrow. “It would be no surprise if we won this 3-1 or lost it 4-1 – anybody can beat anybody in this league”
