Alloa scored two late goals to secure a win over Montrose and maintain their position at the top of the table.
Ross McKinnon fired home the first in the 87th minute before Stephen May sealed the win at the death.
In a game of few clear-cut chances, Montrose goalkeeper Michael Andrews saved well from May in the opening stages while Steven McNalley went close for the visitors after the break.
Gable Endies defender Jonathan Smart headed Douglas Cameron's right-wing corner over the crossbar with just under 20 minutes remaining before substitute Armand One somehow fired over from six yards at the other end.
Athletic made the breakthrough when McKinnon rifled Ross McCord's cross from 20-yards and May made the points safe in the final minute with a drilled close-range finish following One's headed through ball.
