Cammy out to turn Saturday’s low into Hampden high

Tue 30 Apr 2019

Peterhead defender Cammy Eadie says the Blue Toon must quickly put Saturday’s disappointment behind them and focus fully on their last game of the season against Queen’s Park. 

A stoppage-time equaliser from Stirling Albion robbed the Balmoor men of the chance to win the League 2 title in front of their own fans.

Peter Macdonald scored in the dying embers to stun Jim McInally’s men but they do have another opportunity to win the league this weekend. 

A draw, barring a very high-scoring win for Clyde at Cowdenbeath, will get the Blue Toon over the line but Eadie says they must approach the game at Hampden seeking all three points.  

Eadie said: “We have a brave enough squad to put Saturday behind us and go again at Hampden.”

“We will be training again this week and I am sure the standard will be as good as it was last week.”

“We have to approach the match looking to win.” 

 “It would be nerve-wrecking trying to hold on for a draw so we will definitely be going there trying to get a victory.” 

“That is the mentality you need to take into the game.”

Eadie knew Peterhead were just seconds away from a title triumph with a game to spare.

Therefore, the former Elgin defender told of his pain at letting slip the lead against a Stirling side that had barely threatened. 

Eadie added: “We all knew it was near enough done.”

“The ball then went through to their winger and you saw what happened from there.”  

“It was soul-destroying but everyone needs to pick themselves up to go again against Queen’s Park.”

“I don’t think Stirling had a clear-cut chance before the goal, or even a good chance, so for it to happen in that way was gutting.” 

“But it is still in our hands so we need to prepare and get ready for Queen’s Park.” 

“Of course, we would have loved to have won it at home, in front of a big crowd, and I think that was what made it worse - getting that close.”
