Alloa promoted after play-off drama

Sunday 13th May 2018

Alloa Athletic have been promoted to the Ladbrokes Championship after a dramatic play-off win away to Dumbarton.

It looked as if the Sons' 1-0 lead from the midweek match at the Indodrill Stadium would be decisive but second-half Alloa pressure finally paid off in stoppage time when Ross Stewart scored.

Jordan Kirkpatrick grabbed the second goal early in extra time to seal a 2-0 win on the day and a 2-1 aggregate success for Jim Goodwin’s men.

The result also means Dumbarton are relegated to League 1 after spending six consecutive seasons in the Championship.
