ALLOA stopper Neil Parry produced one of his best displays of the season as the Wasps snatched all three points at Queen of the South.

But, rather than bask in his own personal glory, the big goalie was instead showering praise on those in front of him.

Few teams have managed to keep 38 goal veteran Stephen Dobbie as anonymous as Alloa did on Saturday.

And Parry put that down to the excellent defensive displays from the likes of skipper Andy Graham and Liam Dick.

The 33-year-old told Advertiser Sport: "We are absolutely delighted and I don't think there's much better in football than getting a last minute winner.

"We dug in and, even though in the second half it looked like Queens were the team who were going to score, when you stay in the game and defend well you can always get that wee chance.

"They (the defence) are brilliant and I thought the whole back four was excellent. Sam (Roscoe) has come on loads this season.

"Whereas Andy is the best defender that I've worked with. His talking, communication and all round play is brilliant. He's brought Sam on and he is looking better and better every week.

"It was a great defensive performance. We had to put our heads and bodies on the line, but we managed to do that.

"Thankfully, we got the three points so it's a just reward for all the effort.

"He's (Dobbie) always a threat where you think he just needs that half chance to get a shot away.

"To keep him quiet is all credit to the team – not just the defence. There were midfielders tracking back and putting in great tackles.

"Not many teams will come here and get all three points, so, for us to do that is great and it stops that wee rut of form."

Alloa became only the third team to claim all three points at Palmerston Park this season with their smash and grab win.

It lifted them off of the bottom of the Championship table – where they had dropped to for the first time since August last week – and back up to eighth.

With ten games to go, the Wasps have a real chance of defying the odds and retaining their place amongst Scotland's second tier.

Parry continued: "We don't want to get too carried away; we want survival in this league. That's what we would have taken at the start of the season.

"We know there are a lot of huge clubs and teams that were in the Premiership last season.

"We will keep doing what we are doing. More than anything, we can take a lot of credit for our performances this season.

"But we don't just want to be happy with that. We want to stay up and make it a memorable season."
