CLYDE 1 PETERHEAD 3

Sun 08 Dec 2013

Blue Toon boss Jim McInally was in buoyant mood after seeing his side overcome Clyde to move back to the top of League Two.

The sides have traded places over the last week, with Peterhead taking advantage of Clyde’s inactivity in the league to jump to the top of the table last Saturday, before Jim Duffy’s side climbed back to the summit in midweek.

Andy Rodgers hit an early double, either side of Scott Ferguson’s leveller for Clyde, and the points were sealed midway through the second half when on-loan defender Reece Donaldson turned home his first goal for the club.

McInally said afterwards "It was a great win at a really tough place. We are playing ok and scoring goals and are in good nick at the minute.

"We are in the right place at the moment. Confidence is good. Everybody was going on about Clyde's run before today but we are on a good run as well and scoring goals into the bargain.

"The one let-down was that we didn’t score more goals. We didn't pick them off more at the end.”

Thing didn’t all go the Blue Toon’s way, however, with Rory McAllister forced off before the break and Bryan Gilfillan substituted at the interval with hamstring and groin injuries respectively.

"Considering we are meant to be a one man team,” McInally continued, "we lost that man early enough in the game but showed we are a decent enough side. "

"They were enforced changes but I feel we are in a good place at the moment as players are also returning from injury.

"We are bringing guys back who probably should be playing in any case. Considering what we have gone through with injuries and suspensions it is good now."
