Rangers have a difficult cup replay away to Kilmarnock looming but league business should take precedence.
As luck would have it they are facing what should be considered their easiest away game of the season even if Alloa have improved ever so slightly of late. A point for Alloa against any team in the league should be considered a good result especially having come from two goals down in the first twenty minutes.
In fact, Alloa scoring two goals in a single game is so rare it’s only the third time it’s been seen all season. One of those games came in a cup defeat to Berwick Rangers who are currently on the verge of dropping to the bottom of the entire league structure. There are signs of the guts of a fightback by the Wasps and perhaps they still have a sting in their tail.
We’re very unlikely to see it utilised against the Gers though and all indications should point towards a comfortable Rangers victory. Alloa’s two goals against Morton midweek were the first time they had scored in five home matches and only the fourth time all season. A grand total of five home goals, one of which came in a 1-5 defeat to Rangers, tells it’s own story.
Rangers should win here and they should win without Alloa even troubling Foderingham in the away goal, not much anyway. With a little luck Rangers should win this without conceding a goal and the price on offer for that outcome looks to be a little too high.

Rangers are huge favourites at a best 1.12 (1/8) with Skybet, Coral, McBookie and Ladbrokes and should win hands down. Alloa are available at 22/1 with Betfair with the draw available at 9.5 (17/2) with Mcbookie.
Alloa rarely get hammered, only Rangers have beaten them by more than two goals, so there may be potential for backing them on the plus handicaps. Rangers handicap backers can take a little bit of a risk with -2 priced at 1.95 (19/20) with Boylesports, McBookie and Ladbrokes.
A Rangers Win To Nil bet looks more appealing to me with McBookie outstripping the competition pricing it up at 1.925 (37/40).
