Peterhead 2 - 1 Montrose

Saturday 7th April 2012
R McAllister (9, 65)J Crawford (55)

Blue Toon conquer Gable Endies

Peterhead claimed their third straight win as they beat Montrose 2-1 in the Scottish Third Division at Balmoor.

Rory McAllister's close-range header got the Blue Toon got off to a great start as he rose to meet David Donald's right-wing cross after just nine minutes.

Montrose equalised after the break with John Crawford firing in from 18 yards after 55 minutes.

A curling right-footed effort from McAllister gave Peterhead the advantage back after good work from Russell Duncan, again down the profitable right flank.

The striker's 21st goal of the season proved crucial as the score remained 2-1.

The Blue Toon could still finish in the play-offs, but sit nine points off fourth-placed Elgin with four games to play.

Duncan boost for Peterhead

Peterhead manager Jim McInally was delighted to discover that on-loan Ross County midfielder Russell Duncan can play against visitors Montrose.

McInally had originally been told Duncan's loan deal had expired this week.

The Blue Toon will be missing goalkeeper Paul Jarvie with a hip problem with Davie Ross and Bryan Deasley also out with knocks and Graham Sharp unavailable due to a family commitment in Australia.

McInally said: "It was a bonus to discover that Russell can feature in this one as I had been told that he was due back at County this week not next."

"We won well against Queen's Park last Saturday and we have to build on that as I want us to finish the season as high up the table as we can."

Montrose have central defenders Alan Campbell and Jonathan Sharp suspended.

Former Balmoor striker Garry Wood will also miss out due to an ankle injury.

Manager Ray Farningham said: "We played well last week against an Alloa side who will win the league, before they went down to 10 men.

"When they got a player sent off it seemed to unsettle us and while we had a lot of possession we could not convert that into chances or goals.

"We won up at Peterhead earlier in the season and it would be great to do that again. There are contracts up for grabs at our club and playing well in a tough venue like Balmoor would help someone get one."
