PREVIEW Airdrieonians v. Peterhead

Sat 29 Aug 2015

The Blue Toon make their way to the Central Belt today to face Airdrie at the Excelsior Stadium. The visitors go into the tie full of confidence following an impressive 2-1 win against league Favourites. On-loan Cammy Kerr goes into the squad following suspension.

Steven Noble and Scott Ross return after injury, with only Jamie Stevenson ruled out after he suffered a hamstring strain.

Manager Jim McInally said: "We had Airdrie watched last Saturday against Brechin and again on Wednesday night against Rangers. We learnt more in the first game as the Rangers one was a tough evening for Airdrie.

"We showed against Dunfermline, especially in the first half, what we are capable of and hopefully we can show that again."

The home side are without Caolan McAleer who is banned, and former Blue Toon favourite Bryan Gilfillan has left the Diamonds by mutual consent.

Boss Gary Bollan's men were thrashed 5-0 in midweek by Rangers but their first league win last weekend at Brechin showed they can be dangerous.
