PETERHEAD 2 QUEEN'S PARK 1

Sat 28 Jan 2012

Peterhead had to come from behind to maintain their good form against Queen's Park. The Blue Toon were deservedly behind to a Sean Burns goal at half-time, but a change of formation saw them hit back through a Rory McAllister double to earn the points.

Manager Jim McInally said "It was Jekyll and Hyde. The first half was shocking to say the least, and I take the blame for that because I changed the shape a bit.

"I thought we were outplayed and outfought in the first half, but after we changed it we were the better team and deserved winners.

"I told Rory to go out and score goals, to do what Rory McAllister does. In the second half you saw what he was all about, and if he keeps playing like that we’ll keep winning games.

"We’ve come a long way. Five weeks ago we were bottom of the league and now we’re up to seventh. That’s great credit to the players. They took a lot of criticism for what went on before, but I can only applaud them for their efforts."
