Rodgers spot kick floors Spiders

Thu 09 May 2013

An Andy Rodgers penalty in injury time gave Peterhead a 1-0 advantage over Queens Park in this play-off semi final first leg. Queens failed to clear a Steven Noble free kick properly and when Spittal slid in on substitute Rodgers the referee immediately pointed to the spot. Rodgers made no mistake with virtually the last kick of the game.

Whilst Queens had the bulk of possession and passed the ball well it was the Bloo Toon side who looked more threatening. Rory McAllister who came off injured later in the game came close with two efforts midway through the first half. Neil Parry in the home goals producing two good saves. Rodgers made an immediate impact on replacing McAllister with his lob hitting the bar.

A great win for Peterhead at the National Stadium and now a record 9 wins in a row with only one goal conceded. All to play for on Saturday.

A large crowd is expected on Saturday ( 3pm kick off )   It is recommended that fans turn up early.
