Half-Time Report: Rangers trailing to Alloa Athletic at the interval

Jonathan Tiffoney gives Alloa Athletic a half-time lead against Rangers.

Rangers head into half time trailing 1-0 to Alloa Athletic in their first league visit to the Indodrill Stadium since 1922.

It was the hosts who carved out the first chance of the afternoon when an early corner fell kindly for Stephen Simmons, but his first-time strike failed to trouble Gers goalkeeper Steve Simonsen.

Rangers striker Kris Boyd blew two opportunities to break the deadlock in the space of three minutes, blazing a half-volley over the bar in the 12th before heading over at close range in the 15th.

Ally McCoist's side looked determined to find an opener before half time, coming closest in the 22nd minute when Nicky Law's strike from David Templeton's nod-on was deflected narrowly wide, but it was Alloa who snatched the lead.

Mark Docherty played in a dangerous ball from the right, which Jonathan Tiffoney met with a looping header that beat Simonsen to put his side a goal to the good at the break.
