ALLOA ATHLETIC Women’s team fell to a 1-0 defeat to Bishopton over the weekend, unable to build on their strong display the week before.

The Wasps were unfortunate not to take anything from the game, with Bishopton reduced to ten men and Alloa missing a penalty.

It just wasn’t the day for them, with interim manager Sean Black telling Advertiser Sport things just didn’t go Alloa’s way.

He said: “We won last week, but this week we just couldn’t buy a win. We could’ve played all day and not scored.

“We started off well – they had a player sent off but we missed the penalty unfortunately. The opposition went down to ten men and that was our opportunity to get our head up and go for it.

“In the second half, as much as we tried, we had our chances but we just couldn’t score. This is something we’re going to work on in training.

“We know that there is a lot of things that we need to work on and going forward, we need to start turning these games into wins.”

The Wasps have struggled with form of late, having initially won the first three games of the season before then losing three on the bounce.

A last-minute goal allowed Alloa to pick up three points against Motherwell, with Black hoping to be able to build as a team to replicate their performance there.

Alloa pay a visit to West Park this coming Sunday and are hoping to use this week’s training to iron out any mistakes going forward.

“There’s a lot of work needed to be done this week,” Black added. “The girls are all aware of that – they’ve got their own things to work on.

“We’re going to watch the game back and review everyone’s individual performances and see what they can improve on.

“We’re hoping we can improve a bit more going into the next run of games.”
