Moon set for Wasps debut

Second placed Alloa will include new boy Kevin Moon against visitors Arbroath after they completed the signing of the former St Johnstone midfielder on Thursday.

The Wasps will miss captain Darren Young due to a calf injury, however they welcome back Darryl Meggat and Stephen Simmons after injuries.

It is a case of same again for manager Paul Hartley who said: "Our players have been terrific all season and our run into second place has been helped significantly by strong performances at home. All I can ask the boys to do is keep doing what they have been doing.

"One of only the two games we lost here was to Arbroath in what was a cracking game. I am looking for another great game but an Alloa win this time."

Arbroath are looking to bounce back after a disappointing 2-0 defeat on Tuesday to Stranraer with midfielder Daniel Rennie struggling to make the game after being ill earlier in the week.

Back-up goalkeeper Tony Bullock misses out as he is serving the second of a two-game ban.

Gayfield player/manger Paul Sheerin said: "It has been a frustrating few days as we have wanted to get playing again after being so disappointing at Stranraer.

"We lost at home to Brechin last weekend however I could look at positives from that game as we had played well but there were few positives the other night.

"Alloa are more than decent at home but we won there back in August and it would be great to do so again."
