Alloa impressed me at the game in December. Some better finishing would have seen County a couple of goals up at half-time, but Alloa were a lot less open in the second-half and defended really well. The goalkeeper (Parry?) made some excellent saves, and they looked dangerous on the counter. A very well organised team with some attacking quality in Zanatta, Trouten, and Flannigan.
You would expect County to go with the same XI that beat Motherwell, with guys like Mullin, Armstrong, and Semple on the bench? Although, SK/SF might fancy flinging in a more offensive midfielder in place of Spence?
Fraser Watson vdW Kelly
McManus Paton Draper Lindsay Gardyne
Subs: Munro, Grivosti, Semple, Spence, Mullin, Armstrong, Mckay
It's essentially a must-win game given (a) the previous two league results, and (b) a win extends the lead over at least one of Dundee United or Ayr. I think County will scrape by with a less than comfortable 2-0 win.
Would have quite fancied going to this one as I'm in Inverness but Escape From New York at Eden Court was a more enticing option 10 days ago!
