Alloa Athletic 1 - 0 Clyde

Saturday 25th February 2012
D Young (76)

Young wins it for Wasps

Darren Young's late goal earned Alloa all three points from a 1-0 victory over Clyde.

Stephen May had a promising opportunity to put the league leaders ahead but headed wide from six yards out after 24 minutes.

Clyde's best chance of the half fell to John Neill who forced Alloa goalkeeper Scott Bain into a save with a close-range header.

The Bully Wee again came close to taking the lead 11 minutes after the breaking when Jamie Pollock volleyed Ryan Kane's corner over the bar.

Bain needed to be alert to deny Neill for a second time, before Young scored the crucial goal of the game, neatly converting Ross McKinnon's left-wing cross to record his first goal of the season.

May spurned two late chances to double the his side's lead, but the Wasps were able to secure a first win in three games.

Alloa aboard for Masterton

Leaders Alloa welcome back midfielder Steve Masterton after a knee injury to give manager Paul Hartley a full squad to pick from for the visit of Clyde.

After losing two games in a row Hartley has yet to decide on his line-up.

He said: "Earlier in the week I was of a mind to freshen things up after losing to Berwick and Elgin, however the longer the week has went on the more you remember how well the players have done for you all season so making a few changes may seem harsh.

"I will have a final sleep on it on Friday night and name my team on Saturday lunchtime."

Clyde goalkeeper David Crawford is doubtful for the trip to face his former side due to a thigh strain.

Bully Wee manager Jim Duffy has ruled out midfield pair Daniel Fitzpatrick and Jack Sloss, who are carrying knocks.

Duffy said: "Our last two games have been on parks that could best be described as heavy and that limits the amount of football that either side can play.

"Against Alloa on their artificial surface it should be a game for footballers where how well you pass the ball will determine how well you will do.

"We drew 2-2 there earlier this season and gave Alloa a real contest at our place where we missed chances and lost 1-0, so we can be confident that we will do well."
