ALLOA boss Peter Grant says it was two points dropped on Saturday as his side drew with Greenock Morton.

Morton took the lead late in the second half before Robert Thomson equalised; however, Grant believes his side could have went on to take the three points.

He said: "In the first half, we knew we were going to be fighting fire with fire, it's difficult.

"People look at it and say Morton have a few boys out with the illness, we've got six starters not even on the bench.

"For us it's a lot harder, we've got young boys playing their second or third games, some playing in different positions, some playing who haven't trained.

"I'm probably being a wee bit harsh on them but yet again, the corner and the goal comes from us, giving a silly corner away twice in succession and it cost us dearly.

"Morton try and grind you down, they put the ball in your area but I thought we dealt with that quite well.

"Neilly [Parry] done great to play today but he knows himself the ball's going into his arms and that stops the corner, it's just communication and they're the small details that, [with] all the work they put in, they deserve much more out the game.

"But, as I say, coming from one-nil down to get back to one-one and I thought we could have ended up winning it.

"I feel as though it's two points dropped, there's no getting away from that."

Grant also addressed his huge injury list and says he can only confirm his team hours before kick-off due to last minute fitness assessments.

He said: "We've got a lot of good players, but we've got too many good players sitting, not stripped. That's a problem for us.

"Everybody else gets to see their players every day, that's a big issue and I keep saying it.

"I had two players, Raymond Grant and Liam Dick, and it was 1pm before I could name the team because they do a bit of training then it's to see if it settles down.

"It's not ideal, it's not ideal for the players because the preparation's not as clear as you would like.

"We've got to accept that so I'm delighted these boys got through the game and showed the guts and determination to play the game.

"Even big Neilly has been struggling, he went off last week and we were told three or four weeks and all of a sudden he plays so great credit to him but he's very sore now and we'll have to see [if he's okay for Cove Rangers on Saturday].

"We've got too many players, as I say, some playing injured, other boys obviously can't get on the pitch through injury so great credit to them getting a point out the game after losing a goal so late."
