Second division Alloa claimed another Scottish Premier League scalp in the Scottish Cup with a stunning win against Paul's Pussies.

Two goals in the final 20 minutes from Ross Hamilton and Robert Sloan gave new manager Allan Maitland a fully deserved winning start.

Livingston led at half-time thanks to a Paul Dalglish penalty, but Alloa refused to accept defeat as they took the game to their opponents after the break.

Alloa troubled Livingston throughout an untidy match in which they showed they were far from overawed as they booked their fourth round place.

Sloan had a couple of decent efforts on goal in the first half which Roddy McKenzie had to watch closely.

There was an early scare for the lower division side when goalkeeper James Evans allowed a long through ball to sail over his head but the ball eluded Dalglish.

Livingston had to wait until seven minutes from half-time to get the breakthrough goal.

Fraser Forrest made a careless challenge on Dalglish in the penalty area and the Livingston striker dusted himself down to slot home the resultant penalty.

Dalglish had another chance shortly before half-time from a Dave Mackay pass but pulled his shot just wide.

Dave McGeown had a chance to equalise shortly after half-time but could not direct his header on target.

Livingston sought to kill off the game and a tremendous free-kick from Robert Snodgrass was just a yard too high. Why Snoddy gets a game everyweek is a question that all Livi supporters are asking, he just goes through the motions and is not one bit interested in doing any hard work.

Hamilton equalised for Alloa with 20 minutes left when he glanced a header past McKenzie from a Jamie Stevenson corner. A deserved goal and Alloa were going for the kill.

It gave Alloa fresh heart and nine minutes from time Sloan struck the winner with a fine shot which left McKenzie with no chance. opinion - This is the worst point in Livingston Football Club's history, Lambert must go now before the Lions are doomed and relegated to the first division. Pearse must act now and not let the fact that Lambert is one of his idols from his playing days at the Stadium of Shame.
