ALLOA ATHLETIC WOMEN proved themselves to be more than a match for Clydebank, with the visitors relying on luck to ensure a share of the spoils.

The Wasps hosted Clydebank at the Recs, looking to make up for the heavy 4-0 defeat they incurred earlier in the season.

Alloa got themselves into a two-goal lead courtesy of Abbie Trotter and a dream debut goal from Rhianna McMinimee.

Luck went Clydebank’s way in the final section of the match, with them clawing back two goals to take home a point.

Gaffer Charles Dignan was delighted with the team’s performance, stating that every player on the pitch gave it 100 per cent.

“We were fantastic,” Dignan said. “We dominated Clydebank, did everything that we didn’t do in the first game.

“Clydebank are very fortunate with their two goals and they’re very fortunate to walk away with a draw.

“For 90 minutes, we outclassed them and outworked them and they should think themselves very lucky.

“Their goals were just good fortune.”

Alloa took the lead against Clydebank, with skipper Abbie Trotter making no mistake from the penalty spot.

The Wasps doubled their lead early into the second half, with McMinimee’s hard work paying off, netting her first Alloa goal on her debut.

Dignan continued: “We had two great debuts from Martha Fantom and Rhianna McMinimee, they had two fantastic debuts.

“Every player on the team sheet from warmup, to game, to cool down, to the game finished, was fantastic.

“I can’t fault any of the players at all about how they handled the game on Sunday.

“Sometimes teams get a bit of good fortune and regardless of doing everything right, you just don’t get the luck on the day.

“I think they got the luck on the day and for 90 minutes, we were at the races for sure but sometimes balls go in or teams get a break on the ball and that’s what happened there.”

Next up for Alloa Women is a trip to West Park United in the League Cup this Sunday.
