Alloa Athletic 3-0 Falkirk

Alloa Athletic claimed their first home win of the year with a comfortable victory against 10-man Falkirk.

The game burst to life after the hour mark when the Bairns were reduced to 10 men, Philip Roberts sent off for a second bookable offence.

Eddie Ferns finished emphatically to put the Wasps ahead and Kevin Cawley nodded their second.

And another header, this time from Ryan McCord, added some gloss to the scoreline for Alloa.
