MURRAY MILLER believes Alloa didn't get their reward for their effort as they suffered defeat to Falkirk.

Calumn Morrison's first half goal was enough to seal the three points for the hosts and results elsewhere meant Alloa dropped out of the play off positions.

Miller told Advertiser Sport: "I thought we were very good in spells and on a different day we could have maybe got a different result.

"It's obviously disappointing to lose and not get a point out of it, but we need to move on."

Despite the defeat Alloa battled to the end and Miller admitted that while the result is disappointing, his team can at least be satisfied with their efforts.

He continued: "Sometimes it's just one of those games where you give 100 per cent for the full 90 minutes and it just doesn't come off for you, but as long as you give 100 per cent then it's hard to complain.

"We just need to look forward to the games coming up now because every game is important.

"We need to take each game one at a time and try to win as many as possible. The goal is to finish as high as we can come the end of the season."

Miller, who is on a season long loan at Alloa from Rangers, has been a mainstay in the side throughout the season.

The 21-year-old says that playing regular football has boosted his confidence, both on and off the pitch, and his performances recently have reflected that.

He said: "I'm enjoying it, I'm loving it. Obviously, I've got a lot closer to the guys because I've spent more time with them. I'm enjoying it a lot.

"If you're getting game time and doing well then you build your confidence up, even in the dressing room you [feel like you] can speak to the boys more.

"I feel a lot more confident with everyone in the dressing room and that helps on the pitch.

"Everyone you're playing alongside will help you so you never feel like you're lost out there."
