Alloa beat Raith in play-off first leg

Raith suffered more disappointment at the hands of Alloa after losing 2-0 in their Ladbrokes Championship play-off semi-final first leg.
Rovers were pipped to automatic promotion by Ayr on the final day of the League One season, having drawn 0-0 with Alloa, and could not respond against the same opponents following goals from Ross Stewart and Iain Flannigan.
Stewart took advantage of a mistake from Graeme Smith to net the opener in the 22nd minute, rolling the ball into the net after the goalkeeper's clearance had cannoned off him, before Flanningan drilled home from 12 yards early in the second half.
Things got worse for Alloa when Iain Davidson was sent off for a second yellow card eight minutes from time.
