The 3-0 scoreline from Peterhead's visit to East End Park told far less than half the story from what was a bad-blooded affair.

It was three first half red cards rather than three second half goals which proved to be the talking points.

Peterhead FC bore the brunt of referee Greg Aitken's wrath during Saturday's game, with all three of Jamie Redman, Steven Noble and Jordon Brown sent off.

This was the first time the two sides have ever met in league football and it is unlikely to be a game that is ever matched for its vitriol in the coming encounters.

Jamie Redman saw red after only 15 minutes for a challenge on Josh Falkingham deemed by the man in black as dangerous.

Captain and usually level-headed left back Steven Noble was sent for an early bath moments before the break for a tackle on Falkingham, later described by the Pars player as one he would 'be proud of'. Jordon Brown was given his marching orders for a push in the ensuing brawl.

After the break the eight men of Peterhead stood tall for a quarter of an hour before Falkingham - again at the heart of the action - found the top corner.

Gozie Ugwu and James Thomas added to Blue Toon boss Jim McInally's misery before the end but it should be said that those who remained on the park did an admirable job of limiting the talents of arguably this league's top team.

Forfar 1 Peterhead 0

It was a disappointing afternoon for the Blue Toon as Danny Denholm's left-footed strike proved enough to seperate the two League One outfits.

Forfar 24-year-old winger netted just before half-time but despite a energetic 45 minutes from Peterhead after the break, the game ended 1-0.

Dale Hilson, Stephen Husband and Gavin Swankie all threatened for the Station Park side in the first half before Jamie Redman brought a good safe from former-Celtic stopper Rab Douglas.

After the match Blue Toon boss Jim McInally said: "I was disappointed because in the first-half it looked like we wanted to take a look at our opponents and it cost us.

"I don't often have a go at half-time but I did this time - you can't play against players like Swankie and Husband like that. We just never got close to them."

Peterhead: Smith, Smith (Cox - 71'), Ross (Strachan - 57'), Donaldson, Noble, Sharp, Stevenson, Redman, Cowie, Rodgers (Gilfillan - 78'), McAllister. Subs: Cox, Brown, Gilfillan, Strachan, McCann, Richardson, Jarvie.

Forfar: Douglas, Dods, Dunlop, Malcolm, Baxter, Kader (Smith - 82'), Husband (Dale - 56'), Denholm (Paterson - 91'), Young, Swankie, Hilson. Subs: Paterson, Dale, Malin, Smith, Keiller, McLellan, Salmon.

A late strike from Livingston's Myles Hippolyte denied Peterhead a famous Quarter Final victory in the Petrofac Training Cup.

The Balmoor side went toe to toe with John McGlyn's Livingston squad in a breathless first half and despite allowing the visitors the better of the early chances - Gary Glen threatened twice - were pleased to reach the break level.

The second period was lacklustre from both teams until Jim McInally introduced forwards David Cox and Andy Rodgers into the fray.

The usually deadly Rory McAllister was hauled off after picking up a yellow card and it fell to two subsitutes to grab the headlines.

With the game deep into extra time, Hippolyte's strike finally broke down Peterhead's resilient back line in the 113th minute.

Rodgers then saw red for erupting at referee Brian Colvin when the official failed to spot a clear indirect free kick for the Blue Toon inside the Livingston penalty box.

Substitute Jordan Brown rescued a point for Peterhead by scoring four minutes from time in a draw with Brechin City.

Brechin earned a penalty just before the break, but Andrew Jackson could not convert.

The Glebe Park men eventually broke the deadlock at the start of the second period thanks to Paul McLean's instinctive finish.

Despite their dominance, City could not hang on as Brown nodded in a late equaliser from Graeme Sharp's cross.

Blue Toon boss Jim McInally was left ruing spurned chances and Rory McAllister's late red card as Peterhead slumped to a 2-1 defeat against his former charges, Greenock Morton.

Morton's Stefan Milojevic poked the visitors in front moments after the break when he latched onto a Joe McKee cross.

But the Serbian defender quickly spoiled the party for Morton, catching Andy Rodgers on the edge of the box and conceding a penalty which Rory McAllister coolly dispatched.

The star striker saw red late on for two bookable offences before Thomas O'Ware broke Peterhead hearts with a late winner.

Peterhead 3 Montrose 0

Peterhead demolish Montrose in Challenge Cup first round

In this afternoon's Petrofac Training Cup first round, Peterhead FC demolished former League Two rivals Montrose 3-0.

The Blue Toon's triple-threat strike force of Andy Rodgers, Rory McAllister and new signing Jamie Stevenson netted one goal apiece in a blistering first 27 minutes before Jim McInally's side closed the game out.

The Gable Endies cause was not helped when Graham Webster and Gary Wood were both shown straight red cards either side of the interval.
