Peterhead boss Jim McInally criticised his team’s first-half display in their 4-0 loss at Alloa.
The Blue Toon were 2-0 down within a quarter-of-an-hour and conceded again before the break.
His side failed to capitalise on their opportunities in a bad start to the League One season.
He said: “We just defended poorly.
“We lost the game early in the first half.
“We had plenty of chances and the bizarre thing is their keeper was busier than ours.
“They defended better than us and when you’re chasing a game, you always get caught out on breakaways.
“They’re a good side but it was a bad day for us.”
