IAIN FLANNIGAN says the Alloa squad will be looking for a reaction when they take on Forfar on Saturday.

The Wasps missed out on the chance to secure a playoff place as they lost to Stranraer last weekend, but have another chance to do so at Station Park.

And the midfielder insisted the players are determined to bounce back from their disappointing loss.

Flannigan told Advertiser Sport: “It was a big chance to secure that playoff place but the gaffer said after the game that we are still in a good position, even though it was a poor performance.

"We will just be looking to get three points against Forfar. It’s in our hands.

“We are confident of going up there and getting the three points.

“We are in a good position and our goal difference is good as well. We will just go into the Forfar game trying to get the business done.

"It’s a case of going and trying to put in a better performance. Obviously the main thing is getting the points on the board but we want to put in a decent performance as well because that wasn’t like us.

“We are only taking it one game at a time. We are disappointed because we didn’t perform as we have been over the course of the season. We have got a chance to put that right and that will be our focus this week.”

Flannigan admitted the display against Stranraer failed to live up to the high standards the Wasps have set this season, and says the visitors deserved the three points.

He added: “There’s nothing we can do about the result now. Credit to Stranraer, they came here and worked hard. They were well-organised.

“It was a flat performance from us. We didn’t play at a high enough tempo, and Stranraer probably deserved the result. We had a bit of a reaction after the goal but it just wasn’t enough.

“It wasn’t our afternoon in front of goal but then we probably didn’t do enough to deserve the victory. We have got to react to it and get a result on Saturday.”
