Wasps stung by Longworth injury

In-form Alloa are missing only Jamie Longworth as they look to make it three wins from three games in League One.

Longworth is nursing a hand injury but he is not expected to miss too many more matches with the problem.

Ahead of the game Alloa manager Jack Ross said: "Our performance levels have been terrific and all I can ask the players to do is to keep it going. We are in a good place just now and if we play like we have been we can get another win.

"However, East Fife will be a tough side to see off. They have a belief in their side that only winning a Championship can instil and have had two great results in the past week."

East Fife are again without Chris Duggan who has a hamstring problem while Pat Slattery a fitness doubt with a similar complaint.

Player/manager Gary Naysmith knows that the Wasps will be tough to beat but he is looking forward to the challenge.

He said: "Alloa have made a fantastic start with seven consecutive wins. It will be tough especially as we had extra time before winning at Arbroath in midweek and do not have too many options when it comes to freshening things up.

"However, this game will tell me how much progress we have made as they were a Championship side last season whilst we were two divisions below them."
