Alloa aim to bounce back against neighbours Falkirk

Alloa have no injury worries for Saturday's visit of Falkirk but their squad is a man down after Geoff Mitchell left the club by mutual consent this week.

Manager Danny Lennon is looking for his side to bounce back after losing 3-0 to Hibs last weekend.

"We had chances early on in that game however we never took them and then lost a goal just before half-time," he said.

"We can play better football than we displayed last weekend and hopefully we can show that against Falkirk.

"If we do that in a derby atmosphere then we have enough about us to take something from the game."

The Bairns could give a starting role to Lee Miller after his second-half performance as a substitute helped turnaround last Saturday's game at St Mirren from 2-0 down to a 3-2 win.

Falkirk manager Peter Houston, who is without Kieran Duffie (knee), said: "That was a really big result and we want to build on it. We were poor in the first half but a lot better in the second.

"It is a very different game to the St Mirren one as it is at a smaller ground with a smaller crowd and is against neighbours. We will need the right approach from the first whistle."
