Peterhead manager Jim McInally is happy for Edinburgh to hog the headlines in the battle for top spot in League 2.

The Blue Toon trail James McDonaugh’s team by two points going into Saturday’s home match against basement side Albion Rovers.

McInally’s men have won six straight games in all competitions but that is bettered by their title rivals, who have managed 12 on the trot.

Yet, Peterhead can still find themselves at the summit if results go their way this weekend.

McInally said: “It is a massive game for us to win bearing in mind Edinburgh play Clyde.”

“We just need to keep on their coat-tails.”

“Edinburgh just will not go away but the good thing is we have been able to go under the radar a bit.”

“Edinburgh keep winning but we are actually on a good run ourselves, although nobody is noticing which is pretty good.”

Mick Dunlop will miss Albion’s visit through suspension, having been sent off in last weekend’s 3-1 win over Clyde.

Simon Ferry, however, returns to the squad after sitting out the Broadwood fixture.

McInally said: “It is tough for me to pick a team when you see the players, who are on the bench."

“I am just chuffed the guys are giving me that problem.”
