Peterhead throw away advantage

Play-off hopefuls Peterhead could only manage a 2-2 draw after throwing away a 2-0 lead against basement boys Stirling.

Peterhead started brightly and took a 1-0 lead after just 10 minutes, Martin Bavidge supplying the neat finish.

Jim McInally's men doubled their lead before the half hour mark when Ross Smith finished well from close range.

Stirling battled hard and pulled a goal back on 31 minutes thanks to Jordan White.

The second half was a tense affair with very few chances but Joshua Flood's introduction proved to be vital as he went on to rescue a point for Stirling.

Flood's clinical finish made it 2-2 after 83 minutes, just six minutes after the player had joined the action.

Blue Toon confident over Ross appeal

Peterhead are waiting on official confirmation from the Scottish Football Association over their appeal against Scott Ross' red card ahead of the visit of Stirling.

The defender was given his marching orders in last weekend's 2-1 defeat at East Stirling and although the club understand Ross has been given clearance to play, they are taking no chances until written confirmation is received.

Blue Toon boss Jim McInally said: "The indications we have received from the SFA is that Scott is clear to play, however until we get correspondence in confirming it I am not counting too many chickens."

Definitely missing is defender Callum MacDonald, who picked up a knock in training on Thursday, and midfielder Jamie Redman.

McInally added: "This will be a tricky game as Stirling remind me of Peterhead last season in that they have a squad of decent players who should be getting better results but things have just not clicked together yet."

Stirling will again be led by assistant manager Shaun Fagan with boss Greig MacDonald on honeymoon.

Striker Steven Weir is the only player unavailable to the stand-in manager as he starts a two-match suspension.

Fagan will be looking for his players to lift their game after a flat performance in their 3-1 loss to Montrose last weekend.

"To go from the high of beating Rangers to losing three goals in the first half against Montrose brought us all crashing down with a bump," Fagan said.

"We were incredibly flat but we now have the chance to lift ourselves with a good performance against Peterhead and that is what we will be looking to do."
