Hibernian vs Alloa Athletic Match Preview
Hibernian have seen a rather unconvincing display and just a 1-1 draw at Stirling Albion where they bagged a bonus point through a penalty shootout and they now host Alloa Athletic looking for a more convincing display with important points up for grabs in front of the home fans.
Hibs have picked it up late in the pre-season and beat Dunfermline (1-3) and Carlisle (3-4) in two exciting games since early July, but their defensive inconsistency has continued and Paul Heckingbottom has a lot to think about – with a wish to do more at Easter Road Stadium.
Alloa Athletic have, on the other hand, seen a comfortable 0-2 loss to Livingston to finish their pre-season campaign and seemingly struggled to shake off the feeling – as they saw a thriller 3-3 draw against Elgin City and just a point from it with rivals winning the shootout.
Wasps have struggled for consistency on the road just as much but we’ve seen them scoring goals on the regular, which will have them motivated in search of an upset now as well. However, we don’t feel they have enough firepower to outgun the Premiership rivals at this point.
We will thus back Hibernian to justify their role of heavy favourites and bag the important points but not without a thriller on their hands, as we go for a Home win and a Yes on Both teams to score at 7/5 with bet365.
With that in mind, it’s easy to make a case for a high-scoring contest here and this has us going for Over 2.5 Goals FT as more of a banker bet at 1/2 with bet365, which has caught the eye of many big hitters already.
