After being postponed due to snow on the Monday the game at the Indodrill Stadiumwas quickly rearranged for the Friday night.

It was a very young Cowden side, with an average age of just 17, which took the field with six players from the Fife Elite Football Academy in the squad with five starting the game.

With 23 minutes gone we had a good chance to take the lead when Connelly made the most of slack defending to run in on goal but his effort was blocked by keeper Whylie.

Five minutes later he was put through on goal by Smith but his angled shot went across the face of the goal and past the post.

In responses Alloa’s Fagan fired in a long range shot which went just wide of goal in a goalless first half.

Five minutes after the break Connelly saw a shot cleared off the line by an Alloa defender while McManus saw a shot go wide.

On the hourmark O’Donnell sent a free kick into the box but McConville’s header went just past the post.

However it was the Wasps who opened the scoring with 12 minutes to go when Sam FISHER headed home via the underside of the crossbar following a corner.

Then on the 90th minute the home side grabbed a second when Brandon FALLON picked up on a slack pass to round Swinton and slot the ball home.
