UTILITY man Garry Fleming insists the Wasps were more than a match for table-topping Raith Rovers at the Indodrill Stadium at the weekend.

The versatile star put in a man-of-the-match performance as the Wasps kept the high-scoring league leaders at bay.

And the former Dumbarton man, who has impressed in midfield in recent weeks, was satisfied with the point his side gained from their afternoon's work.

Fleming told Advertiser Sport: "We knew what we had to do going into the game. Raith were sitting at the top of the league so we always knew it was going to be hard but we gave a good account of ourselves.

"There wasn't much in the game. It was a game of few chances and both teams will be pretty happy with the draw.

"We had a couple of chances to win it. Kevin Cawley had one right at the end but the ball has just come at him too fast, and there were a couple of others, but Raith had chances as well so a draw is probably a fair result."

Fleming praised the Wasps' defensive display as they kept a clean sheet, and says they are reaping the benefits of having a strong backline.

He said: "The defence were really good. We have been playing with Andy Graham and Scott Taggart at the back but Jamie McCart has come in and that's meant Taggs has gone back to right-back.

"With Callum Crane at left-back as well we are looking solid. We have a good defensive unit. Everyone back there works hard and helps each other out."

Big games continue to come thick and fast for Alloa, who travel to new leaders Ayr on Saturday, but Fleming reckons they are capable of picking up a vital win in their hunt for promotion.

He added: "Ayr is going to be another big test, especially away from home, but we will go there full of confidence.

"We want to go at them. We won't sit in. Our forward players will create chances and hopefully we will be able to take them."
