ALLOA'S Liam Dick believes Friday night was a missed opportunity, but insists the team have a never say die attitude.

With Alloa playing a day before the rest of the Championship, three points would have closed the gap between the Wasps and Arbroath to one point and put real pressure on the teams above Alloa at the bottom of the table.

Dundee won 3-0 and the gap now stands at five points, with Abroath picking up a point against Hearts, but Dick believes the season is far from over.

Asked by Advertiser Sport if it was a missed opportunity, Dick said: "Definitely.

"If we'd won [on Friday], you're talking about one point and then the other teams have to pick points up and you're looking at Ayr next week and it really could have been a chance to take us out of where we've been most of the season.

"But, we've got six games left and we've still got a cracking chance to get out of where we are and only we can do it.

"There's plenty of time left and there's points out there to be won, we're playing teams that are going to be around us so there's still opportunities."

Alloa have six games left to secure their Championship status for next season but Dick believes anyone can be beaten in this league.

He continued: "Queens have had some terrific results [before Alloa played them]. It just shows, doesn't matter who you're playing.

"It's a funny league, you can beat anybody, you really can. Everybody seems to be on a merry go round and anybody can beat anybody."

Two huge games are up next with Ayr United at home and then Arbroath away, but Dick says the team are confident as always.

"Ayr's been a bit of a bogey team for us this season but we're more than confident we can pick up points against them, and the same with Arbroath," he said.

"We've played them at their ground, we beat them at the start of the season and it was a draw last time. There's no reason we can't go there and get the three points again and that's like a six pointer at the minute.

"We go into these games believing we can win, as we do in every game, so definitely we've got two big games coming up and the boys are confident."

Despite being 3-0 down, Alloa were still attacking to the last second, and Dick believes that attitude will never fade away.

He said: "I think you saw [on Friday] even 3-0 down towards the end of the game, we're not a team that chucks the towel in.

"I think the boys have a never say die attitude, we kept trying to get on the ball and do the right things. That'll never change, the boys' attitude has been excellent as it has been all season."
