To be played on Tuesday 17th March at 19:45. Venue: Ibrox, Glasgow.
Odds: Rangers 3/1, draw 4/1, Alloa 9/1
The new Rangers manager heads into the second game of his reign looking to use his squad to find a winning formula.
The current run of four straight draws needs to come to a swift end against Alloa, or Rangers’ chances of finishing second will suffer another significant blow.
Alloa travel to Ibrox with temporary manager, Paul Connolly, in charge after Barry Smith resigned last week following a run of poor results. They lost 3-1 to promotion contenders Falkirk on Saturday, their third straight loss as they try and keep a gap between them and Livingston at the bottom of the table.
Rangers have already faced the visitors four times this season, only managing to beat them on one occasion. The Wasps have never won at Ibrox but did manage a 1-1 draw in November, and that result along with Rangers’ recent failed attempts to beat sides will give them confidence that taking another point is within reach.
Gers goalkeeper Cammy Bell could return to the side after recovering from a dislocated shoulder that has kept him sidelined since September.
Sebastian Faure (twisted knee) and Hairs Vuckic (calf strain) will both miss the game through injury and McCall may be concerned that the latter will be a big miss, with the Newcastle loanee the only Rangers player to score in the previous two games.

Bell, McGregor, Zaliukas, McCulloch, Wallace, Walsh, Law, Hutton, Templeton, Boyd, Miller
Alloa predicted line-up
