Peterhead 2 Ayr 0

Sat 21 Feb 2015

The Blue Toon claimed their first points of the month with a deserved victory over Ayr. Before kick off the Honest Men trailed Peterhead by 11 points and Jim McInally’s side had a game in hand. Nevertheless the home side were jittery and still searching for their first points in February having fallen to defeats against both Forfar and Stranraer.

Peterhead stopper Graeme Smith was called into action twice in quick succession early on to deny both Ryan Donnelly and David Robertson. Blue Toon striker Andy Rodgers curled wide in the 20th minute before shots from Gary McDonald, David Cox and Kevin Dzierzawski were saved.

Despite the early first half pressure, Peterhead took the lead thanks to a fine Gary McDonald header with less than 11 minutes left on the clock.

Then Fraser McLaren was brought down in the box, giving Andy Rodgers the perfect opportunity to seal the result from the spot and score his second league goal of the campaign in the process.

Peterhead: Smith, Kerr, Ross, Strachan, Noble, Redman, McDonald, Dzierzawski, Riley, Rodgers, Cox. Subs: Brown, Donaldson, Smith, McLaren, Jarvie.

Ayr United: Hutton, Devlin, McGovern, Neill, McKenna, Murray, Crawford, Robertson, Donald, Donnelly, Preston. Subs: Beattie, Blakeman, Gilmour, Nisbet, Muir, Forrest, Newman.
