B Deasley (21)
C MacDonald (49)
R McAllister (84)

Blue Toon run goes on

Peterhead extended their unbeaten run to five matches with a 3-0 win over Annan at Galabank.

The visitors took the lead in the 21st minute when Bryan Deasley produced a fine strike from the edge of the area.

David Cox came close to an immediate reply only to see his effort cannon back off the crossbar.

But Callum McDonald doubled the advantage when he converted Ryan Strachan's cross in the 49th minute.

Cox again could have reduced the deficit but failed to keep his effort down inside the area.

Bryan Gilfillan also went close but Raymond Jellema did well to keep his header out.

Victory was all but ensured six minutes from time Rory McAllister drilled home from the edge of the box after good work by Lewis Davidson.

McKenna to miss crucial clash

Annan midfielder Ben McKenna has been ruled out of the crucial game with Peterhead at Galabank due to a knee injury.

Black and Gold manager Harry Cairney may also have problems in other areas to consider as goalkeeper Craig Summersgill along with defenders Aaron Muirhead, Peter Watson and John MacBeth are all rated as doubts with midfielder Steven Sloan and striker Graeme Bell struggling as well.

Cairney said: "We are still in there in terms of a play-off place but we have to win to keep it that way.

"We are looking forward to it as a few weeks ago we look dead and buried but we have fought back and who knows where we will end up if we can win this one."

Peterhead are without goalkeeper Paul Jarvie and striker Davie Ross through injury, however the Blue Toon have Roy McBain available after suspension.

Balmoor boss Jim McInally has a special reason for wanting to win the game.

"In my second game in charge of Peterhead we made the long trip down to Annan last November and lost 2-0," he explained.

"They were 21 points ahead at that time and I told the players that I wanted us to catch them before the season was out as we could then say that we have done well.

"Winning this game would bring us level and give us the chance to do that next weekend, although I recognise that they will be fighting hard to retain an interest in the play-offs."
