Falkirk 1-0 Alloa Athletic

Rory Loy's first-half goal proved enough for Falkirk to get back to winning ways against Alloa Athletic.

After losing to Raith Rovers last time out, the Bairns moved into the lead when Loy struck.

Earlier, Daryll Meggatt's header for the Wasps had been cleared off the line by Blair Alston.

Falkirk goalkeeper Jamie MacDonald was forced off injured in the first half and substitute Graham Bowman kept Alloa at bay.
