Alloa edge through
Championship side Alloa secured their place in the quarter finals of the Petrofac Training Challenge Cup with a 2-1 win away at League One Stirling.
Striker Greig Spence opened the scoring with a neat finish past goalkeeper Callum Reidford after good work from Liam Buchanan down the right.
Alloa doubled their lead after 68 minutes when the ball broke kindly for Spence who steered the ball into the net.
Midfielder Craig Comrie came close to pulling one back for Stirling in the 74th minute when his deflected effort came crashing off the crossbar.
They did get their goal eight minutes later, though, courtesy of Darren Smith who smashed in on the half-volley after latching onto a Lewis Coult through ball, but that was as good as it got for the visitors.
