Alloa Athletic 2-1 Forfar Athletic

Ryan McCord's double gave Alloa Athletic victory against Forfar Athletic and took the Wasps to within six points of league leaders Queen of the South.

McCord's clinical finish from the edge of the box gave the hosts the lead on four minutes and he netted again 16 minutes later by lashing the ball high past Jack Hamilton.

Chris Templeman slotted home James Craigen's pass to reduce Forfar's deficit before the break.

There was to be no further scoring but Alloa's Graeme Holmes and Forfar's Stephen Tulloch became embroiled in an altercation that saw them both dismissed late on.
