PETERHEAD 0-1 COWDENBEATH

The unbeaten record had to be broken at some point.

Nearly five full months had past since the Blue Toon's League 1 loss at Stenhousemuir. Today, it was relegation threatened Cowdenbeath, who ruined the run.

Greig Spence scored the only goal to lift the Central Park team off bottom spot and deny the Blue Toon a 20th undefeated match.

You could argue the wind was the real winner though.

Cowdenbeath played with the overhead conditions in the first half and a early mistake in the Peterhead defence let in Liam Callaghan, whose shot was charged down by Leighton McIntosh.

Dean Brett then went close with a powerfully hit shot from 35 yards, which flew just over the crossbar.

It was tough for the Blue Toon to create much down the other end, although Rory McAllister saw a free-kick saved by Grant Adam.

The decisive strike in the match came on the half hour when Spence got in behind the home defence to slot the ball past Graeme Smith.

As half time approached, the Blue Toon strung together their best move with McAllister and Leighton McIntosh linking to set up Jordon Brown, whose fine shot did not clear the crossbar by much.

Jim McInally's men bossed most of the second period but they could not convert.

In the 52nd minute, McAllister bent towards goal a 22 yard free-kick which was closely watched by Adam and then he combined with Nathan Blockey to tee up Brown, who sidefooted wide.

By far their best opportunity fell the way of last week's winner, Andy Rodgers, in the 67th minute.

A long wind-assisted punt from Smith ran all the way through for the untracked striker but he lofted his shot over the crossbar from 10 yards out.

Other opportunities came and went in the closing stages as Colin Nish's team held out for the win.

It was when the clocks had just gone back that Peterhead were last beaten. This loss comes just as the clocks go forward.
