Match Preview

Gordon banned for Alloa Alloa are without suspended centre-back Ben Gordon for their home clash with title-chasing Annan. Fellow defender Fraser Forrest will not feature after he retired from football this week due to a back injury, and the Recreation Park men will also be missing the injured Ross McCord as they go in search of their first ever win over the Galabank side. Manager Paul Hartley said: "Thankfully I have a few options that I can bring in for defence as it is very much a squad basis here. It will be a hard game against Annan but we know what to expect. "Our players are playing with confidence after a good run in the league and it would be great to carry that on with a win over Annan." Annan will include new loan signing from Carlisle, midfielder Ben McKenna, if the paperwork regarding the move is completed in time. The Galabank side are without John Macbeth through a groin injury, while manager Harry Cairney has revealed that Gary Wild, Bryan Gilfillan, Sean O'Connor and Graeme Bell are all doubts due to knocks. Cairney said: "We won last week against Clyde and also kept a clean sheet which was our first in a while. "We have a good record against Alloa and it would be great for that to continue with a win that would lift us above them in the table. "We have not won an away game for three months now and this would be the perfect game to end that run."

Match Report

Alloa go top Alloa stormed to the top of the Scottish Third Division with a 1-0 victory over Annan thanks to Stephen May's wonder goal. The striker settled the tie at Recreation Park with a stunning strike from all of 35 yards. Picking up a pass from Ryan McCord on the half hour, he looked up before thumping the ball past Alex Mitchell in the Annan goal. The Galabankies looked to reply through Aaron Muirhead but his stinging shot was tipped around the post by Scott Bain before Mark Docherty saw his shot beaten away by Mitchell. The victory meant the Wasps leapfrogged Stranraer into first place after they could only manage a 2-2 draw with Berwick. Annan's defeat keeps them in third place, five points behind the leaders.
