MOLLY WILLIAMS commended Alloa’s fighting spark as they scored three goals in quick succession in a 3-3 draw with Drumchapel.

Drumchapel took the lead early on but the Wasps dug in, with skipper Abbie Trotter scoring two, quickly followed by Megan Armstrong making it three.

The visitors clawed their way back into the game, however, and the points were shared between the two teams.

Williams said there were a lot of positives to draw from the match, which she hopes the Wasps will be able to take into their remaining fixtures.

“We went into the game a bit nervous,” she said. “Our past results hadn’t been great and we had struggled for a bit.

“We set up our formation a bit different and it seemed to work well when we were attacking. They scored in the first five minutes, and we were worried that this would be one of those days.

“It gave us a push to keep going and we refused to be a team that people felt they could walk over. We got to half time and it was only 1-0 and our team talk was quite positive, we looked at what the other team was doing and how we could stop them.”

Wasps captain Abbie Trotter replaced Alex Hyde just before half time, a change that would turn the tide of the game.

Trotter scored two just seven minutes apart, before Armstrong added another to give the Wasps a two goal cushion.

Williams said this gave the Alloa some much needed encouragement and found it improved their overall performance.

“Once we got the equaliser, we felt like we’d turned it up a notch,” Williams added. “When she scored another, we found we were getting more confident.

“I feel that’s what we’ve been lacking is confidence. We have the technical ability to take on these teams – we can take on players, we can all score – but when it comes to doing it on game day, we struggle.

“We’ve looked at the goals we conceded and we’re going to look at how to defend that better, especially with us not having a game this weekend or next.

“We hope that we can manage to finish strong and pick up as many points as we can from the remaining games.”
