Airdieonians - Bain (71')

Peterhead - N/A

The Blue Toon's trip to the Excelsior ended in disappointment as a late Jamie Bain goal put an end to a fine run of form.

Peterhead went into Saturday's clash on the back of a three-game winning streak which saw them score 11 goals, conceding only 4 in response.

But Jim McInally's men found home keeper Neil Parry in inspired form and despite fire 17 shots at the Diamonds goal - seven of them on target - Rory McAllister and fellow front man Shane Sutherland could not find a way through. McAllister was denied three times by Parry.

Then, in the 71' minute, Bain made the most of a slack back pass to slip in and beat Graeme Smith.

The defeat means Peterhead drop from second to third in the Scottish League One table behind Forfar and Dunfermline.
