STEFAN SCOUGALL said Alloa will dust themselves down after the disappointment of Saturday's defeat as they aim to put it right against Clyde.

The midfielder had a standout performance against Dumbarton, scoring a penalty for the second week in a row, but it wasn’t enough as the Wasps conceded three goals in the last 10 minutes as Dumbarton ran out 3-2 winners.

Speaking to Advertiser Sport after the match Scougall said: “We are obviously disappointed we didn’t get a better result, I felt especially the second half we done more than enough to win, but we conceded a couple of sloppy goals.

“It was really disappointing, it was a crazy 10 minutes, it’s honestly quite a blur.

“Hopefully that’s just a one off and we will dust ourselves off and get back to work on Tuesday and next weekend we put it right.”

When asked what’s it like since Brian Rice took over as manager Scougall said: “It’s pretty high intensity. The gaffer is quite demanding but we work hard and it’s been good so far and hopefully we can continue that until the end of the season.

“The gaffer, since he came in, he’s been positive, and there was a lot of positives in that game, especially in the second half, but if we need to score three or four goals to win a home game there is something wrong.”

Scougall has found himself in a new role since Rice took over as he has played the majority of the games this season on the wing for Alloa but under the new management the midfielder has found himself in a central position.

The change in position has seemed to rejuvenate the midfielder as he’s had back to back man of the match performances.

Talking about his new role Scougall said: “You can see I can get on the ball a lot more and I’ve always said I prefer to play more centrally, be that deeper or further forward, I’ve never really liked playing out wide.

“I don’t mind playing there if it’s a job to do for the team that needs to be done then I don’t mind it, but I’ve always said that you will get the best version of me playing central.

“If I can get on the ball, I think I can make things happen.”

Looking to the game against Clyde on Saturday Scougall continued: “We’ll look forward to it, the day's done, there is nothing we can do to change that or affect that now.

"We just need to go back to training Tuesday and work hard and put it right next Saturday.”
