Alloa Athletic 0-3 Dundee: Kane Hemmings scores twice in win

Kane Hemmings scored twice in the first half at The Indodrill

Kane Hemmings' brace helped Dundee beat Alloa Athletic and record back-to-back wins for the first time this season.

The Englishman played a one-two with Declan McDaid on the way to opening the scoring, then benefited from Jordan Marshall's cross to net the second.

Hemmings turned provider after the break as substitute Sean Mackie sealed the three points from six yards.

Alloa did have the ball in the net through Liam Buchanan when it was 0-2 but the striker was judged offside.

Alloa manager Peter Grant: "The better team won, and there's not many times I'll say that because the boys have been excellent. Kevin Cawley's [who missed the match] got pain in his ankle and, credit to him, he wants to play all the time, but I just felt that on Saturday it caught up with him a bit."

Dundee manager James McPake: "It ticked another box [the back to back wins]. It's maybe 18 months since the club's done that and it's important we put that right. Kane Hemmings' performance has been outstanding the last couple of months."
