Bang on the door and surprise Airdrie

Sat 14 Dec 2019

Peterhead manager Jim McInally is hoping that his Blue Toon can surprise title chasing Airdrie in Lanarkshire this afternoon.

The Balmoor men head south with a fully fit squad after Gary Fraser’s leg injury eased with Jim saying: “This will be a tough test and we go into it with not many people expecting us to get a result. Airdrie were on a very good run of results and had reached the top of the league before losing last Saturday to Raith Rovers. I know people who were at the game and they have told me they were unlucky especially as they could have had a late penalty for handball.”

“However, we know that we gave them a really hard game up at our place earlier in the season. We lost 2-1 and I know that we deserved more from that game so we will go there knowing that if we play like we can we have half a chance.”

Peterhead are looking to make it two wins in a row after seeing off Stranraer last weekend 3-0 with Jim adding: “Our first half performance last weekend was as good as we were against Airdrie in that first game. You are never going to dominate a game for 90 minutes in this league, but we scored goals at good times and won well.”

“If we go about our business in the same way at Airdrie we will be banging on the door.”
