ALLOA ATHLETIC Women's unbeaten league run came to an end on Sunday as they fell to a heavy 12-1 to Dunipace.

The Wasps visited the league leaders, with both sides on unbeaten runs in the league, setting up a huge clash.

Unfortunately, it didn't fall Alloa's way, with Dunipace asserting control of the match and keeping it, slotting six goals past the visitors in the first half alone.

The second half didn't fare any better, with Alloa shipping a further six goals, but they did manage to score a consolation goal at the end, Abbie Trotter the goal scorer.

Manager Allan Milne spoke with Advertiser Sport and shared his disappointment, lamenting that everything that could have went wrong did.

He said: "I spoke to the players after the game and they knew themselves that the standards weren't good enough, the performance certainly wasn't good enough.

"Everything that could have went wrong did go wrong. We had five or six key players missing and it was one of those days.

"As soon as it started to go wrong, it just kept going and fell apart."

Alloa now look to bounce back immediately as they welcome Rossvale Development to the Recs.

This will be a big opportunity for the team to right the wrongs of last Sunday, with Milne insisting that everyone will be working hard to do so.

He continued: "The message is to get back to doing all the right things again and get back to doing what we've done the past few games.

"I'm not sure if the occasion got to them or if who we were playing got to them but it's about building that mental resiliency to come back from this.

"We'll have honest conversations at training and we'll talk about what went wrong and about what we need to bring week after week."

A piece of positive news came Alloa's way, however, with the new signing of Nic Mphee.

McPhee comes to the Recs after experience with Falkirk and Stenhousemuir, including working under Milne for several years.

Milne added: "Nic is someone I've worked with at Stenhousemuir, she was my captain and she comes with great experience.

"She's somebody I trust, she's knows the standards that I expect and what I'm looking for on a week to week basis.

"She's also got a lot of quality on the ball, she's got a fantastic left foot and her calmness on the ball is good too.

"She's going to be good for a lot of the girls to have around the place and her experience will help them to grow and develop."
