PREVIEW Cowdenbeath v. Peterhead

Fri 11 Sep 2015

Blue Toon bus Jim McInally has sent his squad a strong message in the wake of their recent run of bad form - take nothing for granted.

Peterhead have scored only once in the past 180 minutes of football and have dropped five of last six points available. Now McInally, disappointed by a perceived dip in performances, is ready to shake things up as the Balmoor boys travel to Central Park.

"A few of the players have been in the squad based on past performances," the manager said. "They've played because they've got good histories. But that won't count for anything tomorrow. I'm ready to make the changes we need to start winning again."

With creative midfielder Jamie Stevenson returning from injury, McInally now has a full complement of players to choose from and believes the competition of starting berths is now fiercer than at any point during his time in the north-east.

"The boys are playing for their places now, I want to see all they can give against Cowdenbeath," he added.

The Blue Brazil go into tomorrow's clash on the back of a similarly dismal recent run of form. Colin Nish's side have lost four of their five opening games in Scottish League One this season, and have conceded 16 goals in the process. McInally hopes his team can take advantage and return to winning ways.
