Alloa secure play-off victory
Alloa secured their place in the Scottish First Division after
claiming a 3-1 aggregate victory over Dunfermline in the play-off
Dunfermline won the second leg 1-0 after Allan Smith’s
second-half goal but Alloa’s 3-0 win in the first leg ensured they
had a big enough cushion.
Smith struck in the 72nd minute as Dunfermline tried desperately
to overturn Alloa’s advantage.
But they could not force a big finale with their hopes stymied
by the dismissal of Stephen Husband.
The defeat led to Dunfermline being relegated as they failed to
produce a similar comeback to the one they managed in the
semi-final against Forfar.
