Alloa beat Inverness Caledonian Thistle for the first time in six attempts this season to pull away from the bottom two in the Scottish Championship.

Lee Connelly gave the hosts the lead with a deflected effort.

He then created the second, when his free-kick was prodded home by Alan Trouten, who also hit a post.

The result also means the Highlanders slip a further point behind leaders Dundee United, who are now 17 clear having played two games more.

As well as their four league meetings, the side have also met in the Scottish Cup and the Scottish League Challenge Cup this term.
