SONS boss Ian Murray has labelled Danny Rogers’ fingertip stop that denied Greg Spence grabbing an equaliser last Saturday as ‘save of the season.’

The goalie, who has now kept two clean sheets in consecutive matches, has been in fine form of late, a fact acknowledged by the gaffer.

He said: ” “It was fantastic. Probably the save of the season from our point of view.

“Danny has done well for us and it’s great for him as well on a personal level.”

Reflecting on collecting three valuable points and widening the gap between Sons and the Wasps, Ian was honest in his appraisal of the game.

He told us: “We didn’t play as we know we can.

“It was a fairly even first half, and in the second period Alloa probably feel that they should have taken a point back home.

“But we held on, and it was a massive win for us and eases us ahead of our rivals.”

“We are now in a good place with just a quarter of the season to go. I’m happy with that.”

Looking ahead to Saturday’s visit to Tynecastle where high-flying Hearts wait, the manager is under no illusions of the task that faces his team.

“Well, there’s no denying that the game will be a tough ask for us”, continued Ian, “but football has a habit of throwing up surprises.

“We are all looking forward to the match.”
