Blue Toon bounce back

Peterhead's second-half revival earned them a 3-2 victory over play-off hopefuls Annan.

Marvin Bavidge handballed a Christopher Jardine cross, allowing Aaron Muirhead to score a thunderous penalty past Raymond Jellema, who had arrived as a 10th minute substitute for the injured Paul Jarvie.

Muirhead then gloriously put away his second goal of the game, brilliantly thumping in a free kick from 35 yards.

Craig Tully put Peterhead back into contention 10 minutes into the second half when he met Rory McAllister's smart cross with a well placed finish.

Bavidge then made amends for his handball by first curling an equaliser into the top corner, before meeting David Ross' dangerous cross to tuck away his second and turn the match around for Peterhead.

The Blue Toon played the final minutes with 10 men, as Rory McAllister was given his marching orders for a second bookable offence.

Blue Toon blighted by injury

Peterhead look set to be missing some key men against visitors Annan.

Defender David Donald is struggling with illness and top goalscorer Rory McAllister is carrying an ankle injury.

The duo are expected to join suspended Ryan Strachan and injured Scott Ross on the sidelines, while on-loan Dundee United youngster Ross Smith is a doubt as well.

Balmoor manager Jim McInally said: "We will have a few players missing which is far from ideal so it will be a case of getting our sleeves rolled up and playing this one.

"We did not play that well at Montrose last week but we won and as we will be a bit disjointed in this game I would probably settle for the same outcome."

Annan make the long trip without two strikers.

Ian Harty has left the club and Graeme Bell remains out with a groin injury.

Utility man Bryan Gilfillan also remains sidelined and manager Harry Cairney will finalise his side after fitness checks on Scott Gibson and Sean O'Connor.

The Black and Gold's win over Berwick last week was their first in six games and Cairney is looking for his men to build on at success to keep their place in the top four.

Cairney said: "Our win last week has proved to be significant as the teams above us have all dropped points and Elgin are now snapping at everyone's heels.

"With Queen's Park and Stranraer playing each other the Peterhead game would be a great one to win."
