Alloa battled back from two goals down to claim a draw at home to Queen of the South.

The visitors seized the initiative in the space of two first-half minutes with goals from Stephen Dobbie and Jack Hamilton.

But Alloa hit back in style after the break in exactly the same way with Alan Trouten and Kevin O'Hara scoring within two minutes of each other.

It increased the gap between Alloa and bottom-placed Partick to two points.
