Stefan Scougall’s first league goal for Alloa secured a valuable 1-0 victory over Arbroath which lifted Athletic off the foot of the Scottish Championship table at their opponents’ expense.

After an even first half which produced few chances, the visitors finally broke the deadlock through former Sheffield United midfielder Scougall with 11 minutes remaining.

And Alloa held on to secure their first league win of the season and move up to eighth place in the table.

Arbroath now find themselves at the bottom of the pile after taking just two points from their opening seven games.
