PETERHEAD 1 QUEEN'S PARK 0

Sun 26 Jan 2014

Blue Toon boss Jim McInally admits his side were far from their best, as they maintained a five point lead at the top of the League Two table thanks to Scott Ross netting the solitary goal against Queen's Park.

It was the visitors' first match since Gus MacPherson took charge, and they made life difficult for the Blue Toon.

McInally said "It wasn't as nice as ugly. It was a horrible performance. Don't get me wrong, I don't think we deserved to lose. It was a poor game.

"The best performers were at the back. The strikers have bailed them out enough this season, and that's how football goes. Our three strikers were poor today. If you can get a shutout and win games like that, that's what can win you things.

"Queen’s Park played well and got the lift you knew they would get with having a new manager. They're an energetic team and we needed a second goal to try and kill them off. I didn't think we looked as if we would get a second goal.

"We've no right to just turn up and expect to beat Queen's Park. They're a good side who are well organised and always have good young players, so I'm delighted to beat them."
