ALLOA won their last away league match of the campaign on Saturday as Conor Sammon struck the winner against his former club.

Brian Rice’s men went 2-0 up against Falkirk thanks to Kevin Cawley’s terrific opener and Sammon’s cool finish.

Anton Dowds halved the deficit and then it took the last ditch heroics of Andy Graham to ensure the Wasps picked up three points for the second time against the Bairns this season.

Speaking to the club’s official media channel after the match, Rice said: “I’m delighted with the win. To come to Falkirk, a full time club, we were 2-0 up and very, very comfortable.

“We lost a sloppy goal and it got a wee bit ragged but I couldn’t ask any more from the boys.

“I said to them let’s try and finish with two wins. We’ll concentrate on [Saturday’s] game, last away game of the season, let’s try and get the three points. Local derby, [I’m] absolutely delighted.”

Rice continued: “I said before the game it’s all about togetherness. If we’re not all in it together – not just as players but as a club – then we’ll struggle.

“We’ve got to be together and I think you saw a great togetherness to see it out.

“We’ve never let up towards the end of the season, I keep demanding off them. I demand off myself and I demand off them.

“Listen, I’ve got to praise them. We sent the fans away happy so I’m just delighted. It’s a great day for us.”

Alloa’s last league match of the season is at home on Saturday, April 30 against Montrose, who will finish third in the table regardless of the outcome.

A win for the Wasps, combined with a draw or defeat for Falkirk who travel to Queen’s Park, will see Rice’s men finish fifth.
