Alloa Athletic 2-3 Falkirk

Alloa Athletic's five-match unbeaten run was ended as Falkirk left Clackmannanshire with all three points.

The visitors got off to a flying start when Alex Cooper dispatched a fine free-kick but Mark Docherty's strike levelled matters.

Rory Loy restored the Bairns' lead from close range moments before the break.

Loy set up Blair Alston to slot home and the Wasps' Liam Buchanan pulled a goal back from the penalty spot having been fouled by Peter Grant.
