Peterhead 1 - 0 Queen's Park

Saturday 25th August 2012
R McAllister (pen 82)

Rory right on the spot

A late penalty strike from Rory McAllister sealed the points for Peterhead in a tense clash with Queen's Park.

The win sends them second, but they were made to wait until late on by a spirited performance from Queen's Park.

Anthony Quinn went close for the visitors in the 40th minute, with a right-footed volley from the centre of the area, that Paul Jarvie did well to parry.

A sustained period of pressure from the home side almost led to a breakthrough in the 46th minute, but Queen's Park's rearguard did well to snuff out the danger from a succession of corners and a free kick crossed into the box.

It looked like ending in a stalemate until James Brough brought McAllister down in the box on the 81st minute, and McAllister stepped up to put the spot-kick away and win the game.

Sharp returns to the fray

Peterhead full-back Graeme Sharp returns to face visitors Queens Park after missing out on last weekend's win over Clyde as he was getting married.

Striker Davie Ross, who recently broke his collarbone, is the Balmoor club's only absentee through injury.

Manager Jim McInally said: "The build-up to this game has certainly been a lot quieter than the build-up to the Rangers one a fortnight ago but the prize of three points is the same.

"Queens Park games are always tough affairs as they play a lot of good football and have players who can hurt you. Of course staying at the top of the table is also up for grabs so it should be a tight contest."

Queens Park have a fully fit squad free of suspensions.

Jamie Brough is back in contention after work commitments kept him out last week against Montrose.

Hampden head coach Gardner Speirs said: "I am glad to have everyone available as this will be a really tough match at a tough venue.

"Peterhead have started the season well and will be challenging at the top of the table all season. However, we have aspirations to do the same.

"We have played well at their place before and will be looking to do so again. We were a bit flat against Montrose last Saturday after a tough midweek game against Partick, but we are refreshed and raring to go."
