Alloa's Kevin Cawley
Kevin Cawley conceded a penalty but redeemed himself with the winning goal for Alloa

Alloa climbed away from the foot of the Championship with a home win over Dunfermline.

Both scored from penalties in the first half; Alan Trouten for Alloa, while Kevin Nisbet equalised for Dunfermline.

Lee Ashcroft headed against the bar but instead it was Alloa who re-took the lead when Kevin Cawley headed in Iain Flannigan's cross at the far post.

Greg Kiltie shot over for Dunfermline, and Cawley's shot cleared the crossbar as Alloa missed a late chance.
