Daly news: Michael opens account

Michael Daly's first goal for Annan was enough to condemn second-placed Peterhead to a 2-1 away defeat.

Boosted by the point earned in a 0-0 draw against Rangers in their previous league game, Harry Cairney's side went ahead after just two minutes when Graeme Ramage latched on to David Murray's pass before sending a low driven effort past Mark McCallum.

Steven Sloan was inches away from doubling the Black and Golds' lead nine minutes into the second half, but his close-range header cannoned against the post.

The home side's mounting pressure eventually told when Daly applied the finish to Ramage's right-wing cross two minutes later.

Daly was unlucky not to further extend the hosts' advantage in the 76th minute when he struck the post with a right-footed effort.

Veteran striker Martin Bavidge scored his first goal of the season five minutes from time to give Annan a nervy final few minutes, but the Blue Toon were unable to snatch a late equaliser.

Bell missing for Annan

Annan will be without the injured Graeme Bell for the visit of Peterhead to Galabank.

Bell is struggling with a groin problem that has kept him sidelined for the last five matches.

The Black and Golds are also sweating on the fitness of Jack Steele and Graeme Ramage, who both picked up knocks in the goalless draw with Rangers last weekend, which saw a record home crowd for Annan.

Manager Harry Cairney said: "It will be a very different atmosphere and we will have to ensure that we do not approach the game any differently because of that.

"Peterhead are a really strong side, and, whilst they have some players missing due to suspension, they will still put a strong starting eleven out."

Peterhead are without suspended trio Callum MacDonald, Steven Noble and Scott Ross.

The three were all dismissed during the club's 2-0 defeat to Elgin last weekend, a result that brought to an end the club's three match winning run.

The Blue Toon are also missing Davie Ross (broken collarbone) and Bryan Deasley (ill).

Manager Jim McInally has brought defender Ryan Harding in on loan from Alloa and he will go straight into the team.

McInally said: "I worked with Ryan at Morton and East Stirling and know he will do a good job for me. We are a bit patched up but hopefully we can catch Annan struggling to adjust to playing in front of a packed crowd last Saturday against Rangers to only a few hundred at this one."
