Blue Toon out to turn the tables on Brechin

Fri 26 Feb 2016

Peterhead boss Jim McInally says his team will be ready for Brechin as they seek to avenge their only Balmoor defeat this season.

Darren Dods' team came away with 3-2 victory on their last visit to the north east and they also fought back to earn a point when the sides met at Glebe Park in December.

Generally, though, it has been a struggle for the Angus club, who are scrapping for League 1 survival.

But whilst there is 30 point gulf between the two clubs, McInally says his men must stay focused.

The Blue Toon manager said: "There is one thing we won't be on Saturday and that is complacent."

"We have lost one home game this season and that was to Brechin so we have to approach the game as though we owe them."

"The message to the players before the game will be, 'this team has already done damage to us this season so lets go and put that right'."

"They also took points off us down at Brechin when we felt we should have won the game so it would be foolish for anybody to think this is a case of turning up and winning."

"That doesn't happen, especially at our level."

Steven Noble continues his suspension but Jordon Brown and Scott Ross return from bans.  Leighton McIntosh is doubtful with an ankle problem.
