ALLOA defender Scott Taggart says the club have to take the point from the weekend and move on to a massive upcoming game.

Taggart made his 200th Alloa appearance in Saturday's 2-2 draw with Ayr United but is already thinking about this weekend's game away to Arbroath.

He said: "Yeah, 200 games for the club, a good achievement – just a pity about the result."

Asked if he thought he would reach the landmark when he signed, Taggart replied: "Probably not.

"Before now I'd only ever spent two seasons at a club so to think this is my fifth here, I've enjoyed every moment of it under a few managers and some good, good players as well so I've loved every minute of it and here's to many more."

Two extraordinary goals, in different ways, were the talking points of the match. Lucas Williamson's thunderbolt put Alloa in front before a miscommunication between Jon Robertson and Neil Parry gifted Ayr an equaliser.

Taggart said: "That's just the way it's went for us to be honest. What a strike and it gets us in a great position, then that one at the end knocks the stuffing right out of us.

"You can see at the end we need to go for it because we need wins and the game's kind of open. We could have won it, but we need to take the point and move on to next week."

Alan Trouten had a serious appeal for a penalty which fell on deaf ears, and Taggart believes it would have been a foul if it wasn't in the box.

Asked if it should have been a penalty, he said: "I would say so. Listen, the goal kills the game but I believe if that happens anywhere else on the pitch or out wide [it's a foul].

"That's happened to me a few times, if it's a winger and he cuts inside and two of you scissor him down.

"It would have helped but that's not how we draw the game."

In the end, the point moves Alloa closer to Arbroath, but Taggart believes his side can't dwell on what could have been.

He continued: "It would have been nice to be a wee bit more closer to them then going up there next week it gives us a chance to go over them and it's game on but we just need to win next week and see where it takes us.

"We've got to look into next week, we've got to win, that's the message, and see what happens after that."
