KRIS RENTON admitted that nothing went right for Alloa after their weekend defeat at the hands of Stranraer.

The Wasps saw a goal controversially chalked off and a penalty appeal waved away late on as they lost out at Stair Park for the second time this season.

And the striker reckons it just wasn’t the Wasps’ day.

Renton told Advertiser Sport: “Nothing went for us at all. The ball wouldn’t fall for us, chances wouldn’t hit the back of the net and then even when we did score it was disallowed.

"We’ll need to look at the video, but all the boys think it should have stood.

“We should have had a penalty late on as well. The boy’s hand is up in the air and I’ve seen the ball hit it.

"How the referee and linesman haven’t seen it is beyond me, but it really sums up the frustrating afternoon we’ve had.”

Renton admitted that his side’s first-half display was far from good enough and reckons none of the starting lineup would get pass marks for their performance in the opening 45 minutes.

Alloa were much improved after half time, but were unable to find a leveller as it turned into an afternoon of frustration for the striker and his team-mates.

He said: “We killed ourselves in the first half with that performance. None of us were at it at all and I can’t say there’s one player in our team who was good enough.

“We were better in the second half and threw everything we had at them, but it wasn’t enough in the end. It came down to fine margins in the second half and we weren’t quite able to get that goal that would have changed the game.

“There was no way we were going to come out for the second half playing anywhere near as badly as did in the first.

"At half time we were still confident of winning the game but it turned into a very frustrating afternoon.”

Renton believes it is crucial for Alloa to get back to winning ways, with a run of four games in a fortnight which could give their promotion hopes a massive boost.

He added: “We’ve got some massive games coming up in the next two weeks so that gives us a chance to put it right straight away.

"We have got to put this out of our minds and build ourselves back up for this run of games over the next couple of weeks.”
