Jason Marrs Alloa's injury list

Alloa are only missing former Celtic defender Jason Marr when they host Dunfermline in the first leg of their First Division play-off final.

Marr has picked up a hamstring injury and will play no part against the Pars.

The Wasps, who finished as runners-up to Queen of the South in the Second Division saw off Brechin City 4-3 in the semi-final and manager Paul Hartley is in a relaxed mood ahead of the meeting with the Pars.

Hartley said: "These games are the biggest in my managerial career but I am really looking forward to them.

"We have little pressure on us as Dunfermline despite their problems off the park are favourites to win and stay in the First Division.

"It will be a great occasion for our club and all I ask is that the players do themselves justice."

Dunfermline will be without Callum Morris and Ryan Wallace.

Morris misses out with a hamstring problem while Wallace is sidelined by a shoulder problem, with both men absent for the first meeting between the sides since August 2008.

That game ended in a 1-0 League Cup win for the Pars and manager Jim Jefferies would probably settle for a similar scoreline this time out as he explained: "We will be expected to win this tie as we are a bigger club than Alloa.

"We were expected to beat Forfar last week on a similar basis and did not handle the first leg of that very well and lost 3-1.

"We recovered by winning the second game 6-1 but we have to handle this one better as we may not get a second chance against a good Alloa side."
