Sadly the visitors fell to a 2-0 defeat against the Scottish League One leaders at Stair Park. The south-west has proved a difficult hunting ground for Jim McInally’s men this season but Peterhead went into the clash on the back of a reasonably strong run of form. The squad was also bolstered by the arrival of former Dons midfielder Gary McDonald.

But despite plenty of Blue Toon possession, a barrage of attempts from Stephen Aitken's side led to goals for first Jamie Longworth in the 28th minute and then from Jon McShane immediately after the break.

New signing McDonald joined fellow new boy Kevin Dzierzawski in the starting lineup but fell to defeat on his debut. Striker Rory McAllister missed the clash at Stair Park through suspension.

Stranraer: Mitchell, Pettigrew, Rumsby, McKeown, Longridge, Winter, Bell (Gallagher) Aitken, Gibson, McShane (Malcolm), Longworth (Stoney). Subs: Malcolm, Stirling, Robertson, Russell, Gallagher, Tobin, Stoney.

Peterhead: Smith, Kerr, Strachan, Ross, Donaldson (Brown), Smith, Dzierzawksi, Redman, Riley (Rodgers), McDonald, Cox (McLaren). Subs: Jarvie, Brown, Rodgers, McLaren,

Forfar 3 Peterhead 1

With Stranraer facing Dundee in the Scottish Cup and all remaining League One clashes postponed due to the poor weather, Peterhead had an excellent chance to leapfrog their rivals with a win at Station Park.

Boss Jim McInally had overseen the Blue Toon's impressive run of 13 points from a possible 15 and was delighted to have immovable defender Scott Ross is back in contention for a start following a return from suspension.

However Saturday proved to be a disappointing trip to Station Park for Peterhead. A challenging game against the Loons was made more difficult by a first-half sending off for goal threat Rory McAllister.

Chris Templeman opened the scoring for the home side in the 33 minute with a left-footed shot from close range before McAllister's sending off for a second yellow card offence in the 41 minute changed the complexion of the tie.

Gavin Swankie's right footed shot from a tight angle put Forfar two goals to the good in the 53 minute before lively Blue Toon full back Cammy Kerr pulled one back seven minutes later.
Sadly Swankie added insult to injury in the final moments with a third goal for Forfar, leaving Jim McInally and his players with plenty to reflect on after an afternoon which could have ended with them in the playoff zone.

Following a weekend off due to a weather postponement at Glebe Park, Jim McInally's squad was close to full strength and the manager had new signings Nicky Riley and Kevin Dzierzawski a fit and available for selection.

An afternoon plagued by tumultuous weather ended with a fantastic win for the Blue Toon against a stubborn Warriors side. A dogged goal from Cammy Kerr was followed up by a memorable first from man of the match and new signing Kevin Dzierzawski.

The Blue Toon had gone in ahead at the break thanks to a scrappy goal from on-loan full back Cammy Kerr. However Rory McAllister missed a penalty moments later, after Jamie Stevenson was brought down in the box.

In the 56th minute the home side made a breakthrough wit a stunning debut goal from Dzierzawski, who played a neat one-two with McAllister on the edge of the box before sliding a shot in from 10 yards.

Peterhead: Smith, Kerr, Noble, Strachan, Donaldson, Dzierzawski, Cox, Redman, McAllister, Stevenson, Riley. Subs: Jarvie, Rodgers, Smith, Brown, McLaren.
Stenhousemuir: Gleming, McCormack, Meechan, Lithgow, Summers, Millar, Faulds, Hodge, McMenamin, McMullan, Sutherland. Subs: Shan, Duncan, Fotheringham, Watt, Eddington, Grehan.

Peterhead 2 Stirling 1

The Beanos may have been propping up the foot of the Scottish League One table with only 13 points from their first 20 matches, but Peterhead had failed to beat Stuart McLaren’s side in either of their last two visits to the north-east.

And it looked like that impressive Stirling form at Balmoor was set to continue after Craig Wedderburn netted in the first half.
But the Blue Toon launched a fantastic comeback with second half goals from Rory McAllister from the spot and Jamie Stevenson.

Peterhead: Smith, Kerr, Noble, Donaldson, Ross, Cowie, Strachan, Redman, McAllister, Stevenson, Cox. Subs: Jarvie, Rodgers, Brown, Smith, Trialist.
Stirling Albion: Paterson, McGeachie, Creaney, Beith, Wedderburn, Smith, Johnston, Comrie, Shepherd, Smith, Cunningham. Subs: Reidford, Hamilton, Forsyth, Folton, Robertson, McClune.
