PART-TIME in name only: That's the way Peter Grant sees his Wasps as they once again defied their lowly status to send shockwaves through Scottish football.

This time, it was league leaders Dundee United who were sent homeward with their tails between their legs after Alloa's dominant display on Friday night delivered all three points on the telly.

Grant's boys excelled to a man as they finally broke their Indodrill hoodoo to claim all three points for the first time this season; following humbling defeats to Ayr United and Arbroath.

A Kevin O'Hara masterclass in leading the line led the Wasps to victory with Iain Flannigan, Steven Hetherington, and Andy Graham – among others – supreme.

It's not the first time Alloa were written off before a ball was kicked and Peter Grant knows it won't be the last.

He said: "I know they are part-time and people keep mentioning the fact they are part-time, but they are good players and sometimes it's not worth it for them to go full-time.

"They have to got to respect that these kids can play. I see them training and that's why I get disappointed in the Ayr and the Arbroath game.

"It's no disrespect to them, but we didn't turn up. It's not because they are part-time, but because of the way I see them train and prepare.

"That's the way I expect them to perform."

O'Hara's first-half strike sent the Wasps on their way with the striker also going close as he threatened to make it two.

Alloa only won six of their home games last season and Grant is determined for them to turn the Recs into a venue no team looks forward to visiting.

"They got their just rewards on Friday, but we've got to make sure we turn the Recs into a fortress," Grant continued. "The results here have not been good enough over the last few seasons.

"That's what I am told and it is so important to use your home games to make sure you get the three points."

The win was Alloa's second in less than ten months over the Tangerines after ending 58 years of hurt last season.

"I am delighted and anyone who saw the game will know we could have got another couple in the second half," Grant said.

"We were playing against an excellent side who cause you major problems and some very good players.

"But, I have said before to people who listen to me that we have very good players also and our best defenders were our front men and our best attackers were defenders.

"They got on the ball and used it very well and when we didn't have possession of the ball the strikers put them under pressure to make sure they couldn't play any easy balls forward.

"I was chuffed with the full performance and you know you will be under the cosh for a certain period but to a man we stuck to our guns and we were concentrated and competitive and that's so important when you are a footballer."

The performance of O'Hara, who netted his third goal since joining in the summer, drew plaudits from pundits and fans alike.

And while praising all of his attacking options, Grant couldn't hide his delight at the striker's display.

He said: "Kevin's been excellent for me and he's a young man who hasn't played much football, but I saw him playing with my son (Peter jnr) at Falkirk.

"He's been excellent for us and he gives us something different."
