Peterhead on the Scottish Cup road

Fri 23 Nov 2018

Peterhead are on the Scottish Cup trail as they meet Morton at Cappielow in the third round.

The fixture marks a return to familiar surroundings for Blue Toon boss Jim McInally, who was in charge of Ton between 2004 and 2008.

The Balmoor men booked their place in the draw with a win over Lowland League side Kelty Hearts last month.

However, after a free Saturday last weekend, they have been made to stew over a disappointing League 2 defeat to Queen’s Park a fortnight ago, a result which ended a seven-match winning streak.

Peterhead went down 2-0 at Hampden but their defence will be stiffened with the return of the fit-again Paddy Boyle while Mick Dunlop is free from suspension.
