Alan Trouten took his Alloa tally to seven for the season

Two second half penalties moved Alloa above Partick Thistle and out of the relegation places in the Championship.

Morton's Jim McAlister and Alloa's Kevin Cawley both went close with early chances.

The deadlock was broken when Alan Trouten stepped up to score his seventh goal of the season from the spot.

Six minutes from time, with Trouten substituted, Iain Flannigan grabbed his fifth goal of the season to secure a huge victory for Jim Goodwin's men.
