But despite being shot out of the air, the bird managed to recover shortly before hitting the ground and fly to safety. Referee Euan Anderson was forced to stop play and award a drop ball in order to get the game going again. Alloa managed to retain their composure and went on to win the match 1-0, ensuring their passage into the third round of the Scottish Cup.
