A BARNSTORMING second-half fightback and one of the finest goals of his long Alloa career was all just part of another day at the office for Kevin Cawley. 

The little winger popped up with a first-half wonder strike after escaping the clutches of two Morton men and curling the ball beyond the despairing reach of Danny Rogers. 

He then covered every blade of grass and was pivotal to Alloa’s remarkable recovery from beyond the grave, delivering the perfect cross for Robbie Deas to bag a dramatic late leveller.

It’s not the first-time - and it’s certain to not be the last - Cawley and his cohorts clawed their way back into a game from an improbable position with this latest feat securing the Wasps’ longest unbeaten run since 1973. 

“The first-half performance wasn’t good enough,” Cawley told Advertiser Sport. “We knew ourselves we had to come out and put on a better performance and get the goals.

“I felt if we got the goal we would get another with the way things have been going for us lately.

“We never die and we just keep going to the end. We have had so many comebacks even this season and last season. We know we have it in us to do it.

“The likes of myself and Flanny (Iain Flannigan) know the team so well and it’s just that good core and the mix of younger boys who come in and help the team.

“We’ve got a good group and we know how to play to our strengths but we also know what we can do to improve.

“The gaffer is always saying we need to stop crosses and you saw again that they got the four crosses in and scored four goals.

“The guys are all experienced enough and when new managers come in with new methods, we take it on and you’ve seen that with Peter.

“He likes to play expansive football but we need to dig in when we have to. We have that resilience even although Andy (Graham) has been out injured for so long and he’s our main man.”

In an eight-goal thriller, it was Cawley’s goal which proved the pick of the bunch but the 30-year-old was remaining as humble as ever in the aftermath. 

“I managed to get free and get half a yard and get the shot away and lucky enough it has gone into the top corner,” he said.

“They will be disappointed blowing a two-goal lead but we were disappointed going in at half-time two down.

“It’s now seven games undefeated and that helps us to breed confidence which we can take into the next game.

“We have all dug in and should be proud of ourselves.”
