A solid first quarter of the season needs to be bettered in the next nine games.

That is the verdict of Peterhead assistant manager Davie Nicholls after the Blue Toon’s 16 point haul so far.

The Balmoor team sit third in League 2, six points adrift of table-toppers Stirling Albion.

Nicholls said: “It has been steady without being expectional up until now.”

“We have certainly got things to aim for in the next quarter and the boys are determined to put more points on the board and kick on.”

“The lads know what they are up against now because they have had a look at everybody.”

“It is just about preparing the team, being consistent every week and doing the business.”

Peterhead have chalked up five wins but just one of those victories has come at Balmoor.

After sweeping aside former Highland League rivals Elgin, the Blue Toon have come up short against Stirling Albion, Montrose and Berwick.

Nicholls went on: “It is still early days.”

“16 points from nine games is not a bad return but we will need to do better in the next part of the season, especially at home.”

“We have done well in the cups at Balmoor, winning all four ties in the various competitions, but we can do much better in the league.”

“We lost a couple of games and even the draw with Montrose was disappointing, conceding that late goal, but there is time to put it right.”
