Jamie Stevenson reckons cup wins over top-flight teams make Peterhead dangerous Jamie Stevenson reckons cup wins over top-flight teams make Peterhead dangerous

 

Jamie Stevenson believes the underdog tag will suit Peterhead in this weekend's IRN-BRU Cup tie away to Inverness Caley Thistle.

The Blue Toon have already knocked out East Fife and Annan, courtesy of a couple of 2-0 wins, to book their place in the last 16.

The 2015/16 finalists also have a knack of raising their game when they are less fancied.

Given their recent record against Premiership clubs in cup competitions, Stevenson claims a meeting with second tier opposition will not phase them.

Stevenson said: "Nobody expected us to beat Hearts in the Betfred Cup and we defeated Dundee last year so you never know."

"We are going there to give it a right good go and we are capabe of getting a result. Stranger things have happened."

"Inverness are a Championship team so we know it will be tough but the only side who I would say have destroyed us this season are Dunfermline."

"That is a good gauge in knowing the standard and what we are up against."
