10-man Peterhead notch away win for second successive game

Sun 15 Jan 2017

ALLOA 0-1 PETERHEAD

Peterhead were rewarded for their battling qualities after claiming all three points at second top Alloa.

The statistics were all in favour of the hosts in this match aside from the key one, the scoreline, which came courtesy of Leighton McIntosh's strike early in the second half.

It turned out to be an eventful afternoon for the strikers.

Rory McAllister was forced off in the first period due to illness.

His replacement, McIntosh, netted the decisive goal but he made his team-mates sweat for the victory after getting sent off in the 75th minute.

One of the highlights was the debut of Partick defender Michael McMillan, the teenager playing his part in a resolute display less than 24 hours after signing on loan for the rest of the season.

McMillan was pitched straight into the team, with fellow loanee Liam Gordon still not quite ready to feature.

The 19 year old slotted in well but Peterhead's chances of turning over the Wasps appeared to lessen when McAllister, who had netted in each of his last two matches, had to come off in the 34th minute.

However, Jim McInally's men stayed organised and when a chance came along in the 49th minute, they seized it.

McIntosh drove a shot into the corner of the net from the left side of the penalty box from Nicky Riley's assist.

The former Dundee man then picked up two cards in the space of a minute, the second a harsh straight red for apparent violent conduct following a sliding challenge on Jason Marr.

Another forward down, Peterhead had to cling on in the closing stages but they got over the line to come away with a second successive 1-0 win on their travels.
