Alloa’s habit of testing Rangers to aid Ladbrokes price boost

Alloa Athletic may have escaped the drop by the skin of their teeth last season, but the Wasps were a real nuisance to Rangers in both league and cup during 2014/15.

Up against their illustrious opponents five times in all, Rangers only prevailed once in the Championship, while the Clackmannan club recorded a famous 3-2 victory at the Indodrill Stadium to send the Gers crashing out the Scottish League Cup.

Fast forward to the start of a fresh Championship campaign and the club’s respective opening-day results suggest they’ll most probably be fighting at opposite ends of the table once again.

Mark Warburton’s men were 3-1 winners at home to St.Mirren, while Danny Lennon’s side went down by the scoreline at Queen of the South.

Unsurprisingly, Ladbrokes have no trouble in making Rangers the big 2/5 favourites for the win in their Sunday clash at the Indodrill, with Alloa 13/2 outsiders and the draw at 4/1.

Nevertheless, given the way the Wasps raised their game against the Blues last term, Ladbrokes headline offer on the game looks to have a great chance of landing.

From 8.00am on the day of kick-off, the bookmakers will enhance the price on a Rangers win with both teams finding the net from 15/8, out to 9/4.

Considering both teams troubled the scoreboard in four out of five clashes last season, there is even more attraction attached.

If, however, this doesn’t take customers’ fancy, then don’t forget Ladbrokes new Sharp Shooter promotion, which could be best utilised on Rangers’ new signing Martyn Waghorn at 10/3.
