One week off has worked wonders, says Stef

Tue 01 Nov 2016

Peterhead forward Stefan McCluskey claims the players have come back refreshed and rejuvenated from a recent break in League 1.

The Blue Toon are on the march after three straight wins against Airdrie, Albion Rovers and Stranraer.

McCluskey believes the squad has benefitted from a spare Saturday last month.

The former Morton and Clyde attacker said: "The manager gave us one week off training and think it worked, just to give the players a little rest."

"The season is still in the early stages but a rest now and again is good for you."

"It has refreshed us and we are on a good run now."

Jim McInally's men are determined to continue their winning streak this weekend and avenge their September defeat to Brechin, who came from behind to win 2-1 at Glebe Park.

McCluskey went on: "We played Brechin off the park that day and they broke away and scored near the end of the game."

"But if we can repeat our performances of late then we can keep the winning run going."

The 26 year old added: "We know we should be further up the table, around the top teams."

"Livingston are at the top just now, and although they came up here and won 2-1, I don't think they should have beaten us."

"If we can take care of our home games, especially, we will do alright this season."
