Peterhead went into their clash with a Binos side rooted to the bottom of the League One table full of confidence following a 3-0 victory of Brechin. But despite an early goal from Rory McAllister, who netted with a deflected free-kick, the Blue Toon fell to a surprise defeat. Lewis Coult levelled the score for the home side with a right-footed strike - his first goal for the Forthbank club.PHEADSTIRLING121000

Brechin 2 Peterhead 2

The Blue Toon travelled down the A90 to Glebe Park midweek to face Brechin for the second time in 10 days. The meeting earlier this month was The City's first defeat in 18 games and brought an end to a record-equaling run.

Despite a quick-fire double from Gary McDonald and captain Steven Noble midway through the first half, Brechin clung on to secure a point against the Blue Toon. A 43rd minute strike from Colin Hamilton was followed by an agonisingly late injury time penalty from Bobby Barr.

Peterhead: Smith, Kerr, Strachan, Ross, Noble, Dzierzawski, McDonald, Redman, Stevenson, Riley, McAllister. Subs: Rodgers, Cox, Brown, Smith, Donaldson, MacDonald.

Brechin: Smith, McLean, McCormack, McLauchlan, Hamilton, Fusco, Molloy, McNeil, Masson, Barr, Jackson. Subs: Thomson, Ferguson, Durojaiye, Jackson, Tapping. Tough.

Peterhead 3 Forfar 2

Gary McDonald’s third goal since arriving at Balmoor secrued all three points for the Blue Toon against a talented Forfar side. Dick Campbell brought his Sky Blues the short journey up to A90 to do battle with Peterhead at Balmoor on Tuesday evening.

An early goal from Gavin Swankie put the visitors ahead until two goals in quick succession from Jamie Redman and then Andy Rodgers fired Jim McInally’s men into the lead for the break.

Things went from bad to worse for the visitors when Stuart Malcolm saw red after pushing Andy Rodgers to the ground only yards from the referee and only moments after fouling the striker.

Nevertheless, a late equaliser from Danny Denholm - who headed home a freekick from Iain Campbell - appeared to have rescued a point for Campbell’s side.

Denholm’s goal was, however, cancelled out when McDonald poked the ball home from three yards and ensured a home win for Peterhead.

This evening Dick Campbell's Sky Blues have made the short trip up the A90 to do battle with Peterhead at Balmoor.

Jim McInally: "With Ayr losing tonight we don't have to be looking over our shoulders quite so much. We're in a good place."

Peterhead: Smith, Kerr, Noble, Strachan, Ross, McDonald, Dzierzawski, Redman, Rodgers, Stevenson, Cox. Subs: Jarvie, McAllister, Riley, Brown, Smith, Donaldson, Cowie.

Forfar: Douglas, Travis, Baxter, Malcolm, Dods, Young, Dale, Campbell, Templeman, Swankie, Malin. Subs: King, Hilson, Husband, Fotheringham, Denholm, Kader, Dunlop.​

Ayr 3 Peterhead 3

The League One sides shared the spoils after a breathless finish to the mid-week clash at Somerset Park. Despite a late Ayr United equaliser, the result bumped Peterhead up to sixth in the table.

Nicky Devlin headed the home side into the lead after less than three minutes before new signing Gary McDonald restored parity nine minutes later.

The Honest Men took a narrow 2-1 lead into the dressing room at half time after former Scotland hitman Craig Beattie scored in the 30th minute.

Peterhead then once again levelled, this time captain Steven Noble netting with less than 20 minutes remaining on referee Craig Charleston’s watch.

Jordon Brown thought he had hit the winner for Jim McInally’s side when he neatly finished from a pass from fellow subsitute Nicky Riley in the 86th minute. But with only seconds to go Jordan Preston equalised, leaving the two sides to share the spoils.

Peterhead: Smith, Kerr, Ross, McDonald, Noble, Stevenson, Dzierzawksi, Strachan, Redman, Rodgers, Cox. Subs: McAllister, Brown, Riley, Smith, McLaren, MacDonald.

Ayr: Hutton, Devlin, Murphy, McKenna, Murray, McGovern, Crawford, Blakeman, Donald, Preston, Beattie. Subs: Forrest, Robertson, Donnelly, Neill, Gilmour, McCracken, Newman.

Peterhead 1 Morton 3

The Blue Toon slumped to a disappointing home defeat to in-form Morton after conceding two late goals. Peterhead took the lead in the 56th minute when Sean Crighton brought down Andy Rodgers in the box to set the 31-year-old striker up for his second penalty strike in as many games.

Peterhead could only hold the lead for five minutes though before Declan McManus levelled the score. Then despite several good chances for Jim McInally's men, McManus and substitute Ross Caldwell secured the three points with goals in the 87th and 90th minutes respectively.

Peterhead: Smith, Kerr, Ross, Strachan, Noble, Redman, McDonald, Dzierzawski, Riley (Stevenson 73), Rodgers, Cox (Brown 81). Subs: Brown, Donaldson, Smith, McLaren, Stevenson, Jarvie.

Peterhead 2 Ayr 0

The Blue Toon claimed their first points of the month with a deserved victory over Ayr. Before kick off the Honest Men trailed Peterhead by 11 points and Jim McInally’s side had a game in hand. Nevertheless the home side were jittery and still searching for their first points in February having fallen to defeats against both Forfar and Stranraer.

Peterhead stopper Graeme Smith was called into action twice in quick succession early on to deny both Ryan Donnelly and David Robertson. Blue Toon striker Andy Rodgers curled wide in the 20th minute before shots from Gary McDonald, David Cox and Kevin Dzierzawski were saved.

Despite the early first half pressure, Peterhead took the lead thanks to a fine Gary McDonald header with less than 11 minutes left on the clock.

Then Fraser McLaren was brought down in the box, giving Andy Rodgers the perfect opportunity to seal the result from the spot and score his second league goal of the campaign in the process.

Peterhead: Smith, Kerr, Ross, Strachan, Noble, Redman, McDonald, Dzierzawski, Riley, Rodgers, Cox. Subs: Brown, Donaldson, Smith, McLaren, Jarvie.

Ayr United: Hutton, Devlin, McGovern, Neill, McKenna, Murray, Crawford, Robertson, Donald, Donnelly, Preston. Subs: Beattie, Blakeman, Gilmour, Nisbet, Muir, Forrest, Newman.
