ICTFC are on the road again tomorrow as they travel to face Alloa at Recreation Park in the Ladbrokes Championship. The Caley Jags will be looking to maintain their unbeaten start to the season and extend their 20 match unbeaten run.
Referee: Mike Roncone Assistants: Graham Chalmers and Andy Taylor
Manager’s Preview: John Robertson
“Alloa have been threatening this season, it is not a surprise to anyone in the Championship. When they first played us they sat in but had chances, we had chances too but Alloa are a threat. They have good guys in the forward areas and defend robustly.”
“They use the size of their pitch to their advantage which we understand, we have trained accordingly this week to counter that. Getting their first win last week will give them massive confidence, Partick Thistle threw everything at them but couldn’t manage to break them down.”
George Oakley is close to a return but unlikely to play this Saturday. Coll Donaldson serves his one match ban after being sent off against Dundee United.
Alloa got their first league win of the season last week against Partick Thistle at Recreation Park. Jim Goodwin’s side have proved to be no pushovers this terms and drew 2-2 in the last meeting between the sides thanks to a late Iain Flannigan penalty. The Wasps have also advanced to the quarter finals of the IRN-BRU Cup this term and have knocked out fellow Championship sides Dundee United and Dunfermline.
