Peterhead 0 - 1 Alloa Athletic

Saturday 17th March 2012
S May (20)

May on target for leaders

Alloa remain 11 points clear at the top of the table after a 1-0 victory over Peterhead.

Stephen May's 12th goal of the season extended the leaders' winning run to four games.

May grabbed the only goal of the game after 20 minutes. Robert Winters found his strike partner in space in the area and May fired home from close range.

Peterhead rarely threatened to equalise but Alloa goalkeeper Scott Bain had to be alert to save Rory McAllister's 67th-minute effort as he tried his luck from the left hand side of the area.

May could have added to his tally late on, but Peterhead goalkeeper Paul Jarvie saved twice as Alloa looked to put the game to bed.

McDonald boost for Blue Toon

Peterhead welcome back Callum MacDonald back from suspension as they host an Alloa side that manager Jim McInally reckons will win the league.

The Blue Toon could be short of bodies as Ross Smith, Scott Ross, Graham Webster and David Ross are all injury doubts.

McInally said: "Alloa are going to go on and win the league but our aim is to delay them by picking up three points in this game.

"The play-offs have become a bit out of our reach despite our win at Elgin last week but we will keep on fighting for a place in them as long as we can.

"We have won eight out of 12 games and that gives us hope that we can win a lot more before the season ends."

Third Division leaders Alloa travel with a fully-fit and suspension-free squad.

Manager Paul Hartley is targeting a fourth win in a row to take his men even closer to the title.

Hartley said: "This will be a tough game and Jim McInally deserves a lot of credit for the job he has done at Peterhead since he went there.

"Every game in this division is tough and this one will be no different but we have won our last three games and the players deserve great credit for that after a spell when we lost two in a row.

"We had five different goalscorers against East Stirling last weekend and that is a very good sign for any manager."
