G Sharp (45+2)
S Ross (72)

Home comforts finally bear fruit

Peterhead earned only their second home league win of the season as they beat 10-man Elgin 3-0.

Goalkeeper Alexander Clark was sent off for the visitors when he brought down Rory McAllister inside the area after 21 minutes.

The striker stepped up to tuck away the subsequent spot-kick, placing the ball past substitute stopper John Calder.

Midfielder Graeme Sharp doubled the lead in first-half stoppage time with a fierce strike from the edge of the area.

Craig Gunn almost brought Elgin back into the game after 56 minutes, but saw his drilled effort cannon against the post.

Scott Ross finished the scoring on 72 minutes, meeting Bryan Beasley's cross with a firm header to record his first goal for the club.

Full complement for McInally

Peterhead face former Highland League rivals Elgin and manager Jim McInally has a full squad available for the first time since he took over in October.

Barry Sellars and Paul Watson have both recovered from their recent illnesses that had left them doubtful.

McInally is hoping that having extra bodies available will allow his men to cut out the defensive mistakes they have been making and getting punished for.

The Balmoor boss said: "We are playing some good stuff at the moment but we are committing suicide with some of the goals we are giving away.

"The clubs may be about 70 miles apart but the fans will view this as a derby match so I am hoping that we can keep things tight at the back and give them a home win."

Elgin have numerous absentees ahead of their clash.

Paul Kaczan and Craig Frizzell remain out due to their respective injury problems, while player/assistant manager Barry Wilson, Brian Cameron, Fraser Forbes, Scott Miller, Darryl McHardie, Steven Edwards and Blair Lawrie are all out of contention because of work or family commitments.

With so many players unavailable, Borough Briggs boss Ross Jack has thrown down the gauntlet to the remaining members of his squad.

"We have a few players missing but we will be giving players that come in the opportunity to make a starting jersey their own in 2012 by playing well in this game," said Jack.

"This game is played in a derby atmosphere and we did well to win it 3-1 back in September and a repeat would be great."
