Match Preview

Alloa at ease for Annan Leaders Alloa travel to Galabank to face Annan with no injury or suspension problems. Manager Paul Hartley may opt to make some changes with a busy few weeks on the horizon. The Wasps have lost twice to their hosts this season and Hartley is expecting another tough contest. He said: "Annan are a strong side that work you very hard but having played them four times already this season we know what to expect. "We got back on track last week with a hard-earned win over Clyde after a couple of defeats and it would be great to add to that with our first win at Galabank. "There are still 10 games to go and we are in a good position but I am looking forward no further than this game." Annan are waiting to see if Michael McGowan will be fit to play. The full-back underwent an eye operation this week and is a doubt for the game at Galabank. Elsewhere, Peter Watson is suspended and Graeme Bell (groin) will also miss out while Jack Steele, Bryan Gilfillan and Sean O'Connor are all nursing knocks and are doubtful. Manager Harry Cairney said: "I thought we had turned the corner when we beat Berwick a fortnight ago, however we slipped back again last week at Peterhead after a really good opening half. "Winning this game will be difficult but it would be a great outcome and a great boost to our play-off hopes."

Match Report

Wasps buzzing at summit Alloa remain nine points clear at the top of the Third Division after a hard-fought 2-1 win at Annan. Alloa, who had suffered two losses before last week's win over Clyde, went ahead in the seventh minute as Darren Young fired a James Doyle pass past Alex Mitchell at the near post. Annan looked threatening, though, and Christopher Jardine's cross was met by the head of Sean O'Connor to equalise in the 33rd minute. The Galabankies were close to taking the lead soon after, but David Cox's bullet of a strike was tipped around the post by Scott Bain. An even match was eventually decided in the 77th minute when Ben Gordon squared across the six-yard box and Stephen May was on hand to slot home Alloa's winner.
