KEVIN CAWLEY is hungry to kick on and score more goals having opened his account for his 12th season at Alloa.

Cawley made his first start since September during Alloa’s 2-1 win over Dunbar in the Scottish Cup, popping up to score the equaliser.

This marks his 75th goal for the club and means he has landed on the scoresheet at least once in each of his 12 seasons for the club.

Speaking to Advertiser Sport after the match, Cawley said he was delighted to be back starting and scoring.

He said: “Dunbar were hitting us on the break and creating some chances so they did really well today.”

“We got the equaliser and we had really good passage of play, got the ball out wide and Taggs has crossed it in.

“I got a header which is pleasing as I’ve been kind of frustrated, my last start was around ten weeks ago so it was good to come back in and get a start and get a goal.

“Hopefully, I can continue doing that then Sammo got the knock down from Neill at the back post and we thought we were relatively in control.”

Dunbar refused to lie down to Alloa, however, and continued to force play forward and create chances in the second half.

The last 10 minutes proved to be a nervy affair for the Wasps, who held on to their lead as Dunbar threw everything they had at PJ Morrison’s goal.

Cawley added: “We were holding on at the end there when Dunbar threw everything but in these cup games, the main thing is about getting into the next round.

“First half, I thought we reacted well and did okay from going 1-0 down. PJ knows it was a mistake but we get back in and go 2-1 at half time.

“Gaffer was wanting us to go kick on but it didn’t really happen in the second half, maybe we weren’t clinical enough with the final pass in the final third.

“Dunbar came out the second half all guns blazing and they played really well today but the main thing is we’re in the hat for the next round.”

Alloa now head into the fourth round of the Scottish Cup, with the draw scheduled for tonight.

Cawley insisted the team will just wait and see who their opponents are, but will be ready to go against whoever it is.

He continued: “We’ll take whoever we’ll get and hopefully progress into the next round.

“You never know with the Scottish Cup, it’s a funny old tie and we might get a big team home or away.

“We might get a team that we’ve already played about three times this season but we’ll just wait and see.”
