Match Preview

Bain banned for Alloa Goalkeeper Scott Bain misses out through suspension as Alloa look to bounce back from Scottish Cup disappointment against Annan last weekend by getting their promotion push going again against Stranraer at Recreation Park. Craig McDowall will come in to deputise with every outfield player available to manager Paul Hartley, who is hoping his men come out on top in the battle of two disappointed sides. Hartley said: "We are disappointed at going out of the cup and they will be disappointed at losing in the league after a long unbeaten run so it could be a case of who handles that best. "We had a terrific game against them at the start of the season that we won 3-2. A repeat of that would be great." Stranraer will be without former club captain Danny Mitchell due to family commitments. But fit-again defender David McGregor will travel. The second-placed Blues lost for the first time in nine games last Saturday against Queen's Park and manager Keith Knox reckons that meeting the Wasps is the perfect game for his men to get going again in. Knox said: "We were disappointing last weekend but we have a great opportunity to get right back on the rails at Alloa. "They will have been disappointed as well last week after going out of the Scottish Cup and will also be looking for a win to get going again, so it should be a great game."

Match Report

Say Alloa to second spot Alloa leapfrogged Stranraer to move up to second in the Scottish Third Division table with a hard-fought 1-0 win at Recreation Park. The home side shaded the opening stages, with Ryan Harding's header drifting just wide of the Stranraer goal from six yards out. Both sides had chances to forge ahead but Alloa were the first to convert one of many opportunities, midfielder Ryan McCord heading home Graeme Holmes' cross from the right just before the hour mark. Ben Gordon was dismissed for Alloa after receiving his second yellow in stoppage time, giving Stranraer hope of a point. Substitute Michael Moore could have earned them a draw but the striker fluffed his lines when he struck his shot straight at Craig McDowall with seconds remaining.
