Familiar opponents nothing new for Toon’s Boyle

Mon 04 Mar 2019

League 2 leaders Peterhead are set to face Cowdenbeath for the second time in a week but playing familiar opponents is nothing new for Paddy Boyle.

The Blue Toon travel to Central Park on Tuesday with a four point advantage on Clyde, who jumped above Edinburgh into second spot.

Boyle said: ““It is strange playing the same team again but I have been involved in a similar situation before.”

“I remember playing Forfar seven times in one season when I was at Partick Thistle.”

“It is not ideal because the players begin to know each others games inside out and it can make it a dull affair.”

“It will be different down at Central Park compared to what it was at Balmoor.  Their pitch is tiny and not great so we will need to be right up for it.” 

Boyle played a pivotal role in helping the Blue Toon tally up a fourth straight win, netting the only goal in Saturday’s victory over Elgin.

The 31 year old continued: “It is brilliant to score and brilliant when it means something to keep us at the top of the league.”

“We were shipping goals away before we went on this run so that is four clean sheets from five games, which is pleasing for a defender.”
