Blue Toon finish with victory

Peterhead signed off their Scottish Third Division campaign with an easy 2-0 win against East Stirling at Balmoor.

It took just 12 minutes for the Blue Toon to draw first blood, James Redman sweeping home Rory McAllister's cross.

Martin Bavidge and Roy McBain both came close to grabbing a quick second, before the Shire's Kevin Turner forced a block from Scott Ross.

David Cane got across to deny Bryan Deasley's cracking volley and Bavidge saw another ripping effort repelled by Grant Hay as half-time approached.

The Blue Toon got the second goal their early domination had merited just five minutes after the restart, Ross stooping to glance Ross Smith's header into the net.

McAllister spurned two opportunities to extend the hosts' lead further as time ticked away, but the victory was enough to secure a fifth-placed finish.

Peterhead can't pick pair

Peterhead will be without goalkeeper Paul Jarvie and striker David Ross through injury as they entertain bottom side East Stirling.

The Blue Toon are looking for revenge for a 6-3 defeat back in March and Balmoor boss Jim McInally said: "Everyone knows that having been a manager there I have a lot of respect for East Stirling as a club.

"But I want us to defeat them to make up for that game.

"We had an outside chance of the play-offs until we went there and they scored five goals in the first half and put a major dent in our hopes.

"Hopefully we can get the win and move above Annan in the table as that has been my target ever since they were top and we were bottom just after I joined."

East Stirling will give a debut to Grant Hay as on-loan Hibernian goalkeeper Callum Antell is out following wrist surgery.

The Shire are also without the suspended Ryan Frances, with Scott Maxwell and Alex Lurinsky both missing out through injury.

Seventeen-year-old keeper Craig Gordon has been drafted in as cover on the substitutes' bench.

Head coach John Coughlin said: "Grant has had to be patient and wait for his chance as Callum has been in fine form all season and I am sure he will enjoy the opportunity.

"We ensured that despite a disappointing season we finished our home games on a high by defeating Berwick last week.

"It would be good if the same approach saw us end the season with a win at Peterhead."
