Peterhead 1 - 1 Stranraer

R McAllister (pen 42)C Malcolm (1)

Honours even at Balmoor

Peterhead played out a 1-1 draw with Stranraer in an evenly-fought encounter at the Balmoor Stadium.

The visitors got off to a flying start when Craig Malcolm netted his 10th goal of the season in the first minute, striking home from just inside the box.

Peterhead levelled from the spot just before the interval, Rory McAllister converted after Graeme Sharp was brought down by Scott Taggart.

McAllister tested goalkeeper David Mitchell shortly after the restart but he comfortably collected the long-range drive.

The hosts went close to going ahead on 70 minutes, McAllister again involved, his effort coming back off a post.

Second-half substitute Dennis Wyness had a chance to win it for the Blue Toon in the 90th minute but his lobbed effort went narrowly over the bar.

Smith on board for Peterhead

Peterhead have added Dundee United's 19-year-old defender Ross Smith to their squad ahead of the clash with Stranraer after a loan deal was agreed between the clubs.

Striker David Ross is also available after illness for a game that manager Jim McInally reckons will be the perfect gauge of Blue Toon's progress since he took over.

McInally said: "In my first game in charge Stranraer beat us 3-1 fairly comfortably at Balmoor and down at their place they beat us with late goals in a much tighter contest. I believe that we have improved further and this game will tell me if that is the case.

"Stranraer play good football and like to attack all the time and so do we, so I am looking forward to an exciting encounter."

Stranraer have a fully-fit and suspension-free squad to choose from for the long trip north.

The promotion-seeking Blues have only recorded one win in their last four games to fall nine points behind Alloa in the race for the title, and manager Keith Knox knows that success at Balmoor is far from guaranteed.

Knox said: "Our last trip there saw us pick up three points in a fairly routine fashion. However, I would imagine that this game will be very different, as Peterhead are now getting the wins they were expected to get at the start of the season.

"They will have a huge say in who gets into the play-offs and we need to play well to take all three points home with us."
