MATCH PREVIEW - PETERHEAD (H)

PostedFebruary 19, 2016

We kick off a double header of home games when Peterhead make their second and final visit of the season to Central Park on Saturday with a 3 p.m.
A run of 13 unbeaten games have seen Jim McInally's side leapfrog Ayr United into second place in Ladbrokes League 1, although they are eight points behind leaders Dunfermline having played a game more than the Pars.
That run, which seen McInally pick up the Manager of the Month award for January, started in November with a goal less draw with Dunfermline at East End Park and has seen nine wins and four draws during which time they have scored an impressive 37 goals.
Seven of those goals unfortunately came on our visit to Balmoor when we suffered our heaviest defeat of the season as the Blue Toon equalled their best ever league win since joining the SFL in 2000, a 9-2 home win over Berwick in February 2008 when the prolific Rory McAllister scored his first ever goal for the club during a loan spell from Inverness.
Taking the limelight that November afternoon was Leighton McIntosh who bagged a hat trick with Jordon Brown hitting a brace with McAllister and Scott Ferries completing the scoring.
The Blue Toon's first visit to Central Park saw us put in a more creditable performance as we twice came from behind to earn a 2-2 draw despite playing with ten men for the last 40 minutes after Mo Yaqub was sent off for a second booking.
McAllister had opened the scoring from the penalty spot after just two minutes but Gordon Smith levelled the score but just short of the hour Shane Sutherland put the visitors back in front. Greig Spence however got our equaliser seven minutes from the end.
On loan Kieran Gibbons is the only Cowden player to have featured in a winning side against Peterhead after playing for parent club Livingston in their 3-1 William Hill Scottish Cup victory at Balmoor in November the last time the Blue Toon suffered a competitive defeat.
Peterhead will be without three players for the trip south with Jordon Brown, Steven Noble and Scott Ross all missing out.
