Match Report


Source unknown.

Marcus Fraser's late goal gave Ross County an opening-day Championship victory against promoted Alloa.

County, relegated last season and one of the favourites for the title, got in front when substitute Davis Keillor-Dunn crossed for Fraser to convert.

Declan McManus headed straight at goalkeeper Neil Parry as the hosts threatened in the first half.

Greig Spence had Alloa's best chance but fired wide and the Wasps eventually succumbed to mounting County pressure.

The hosts claimed unsuccessfully for a penalty after Josh Mullin was held in the box.

Jamie Lindsay's towering header was well blocked but the Staggies eventually made the breakthrough in the closing stages.
