Peterhead 2 - 0 Annan Athletic

Saturday 15th December 2012
R McAllister (58)
M Bavidge (84)

Blue Toon back on winning trail

Peterhead ended their three-match winless run with a 2-0 home victory against Annan.

Galabankies goalkeeper Alex Mitchell needed to be alert after 16 minutes to beat away Steven Noble's goalbound effort, as the hosts started brightly.

Scott McLaughlin had sight of goal seven minutes later, but was unable to hit the target with a curling strike from the edge of the area.

Nine minutes into the second half, David Cox ballooned over from close range, before Rory McAllister forced home James Redman's cross to break the deadlock.

The former Brechin man was inches away from his ninth goal of the season, hitting the post from six yards in the 79th minute.

The Blue Toon secured their win five minutes later when Martin Bavidge found the top corner, to condemn the visitors to their fourth successive defeat.

Ross blow for Peterhead

Peterhead are without David Ross as they welcome Annan to Balmoor.

The striker picked up a knock in training and is ruled out along with long-term absentee Callum MacDonald.

Blue Toon manager Jim McInally is looking to former Annan player David Cox to help his side move six points clear of the Galabank men in the race for a play-off place.

McInally said: "David Cox has been great for us since he joined recently and I am sure he will be again against one of his former sides.

"He has helped us look more like the side I want us to be and hopefully that will carry on in this game.

"A win for us would see the league beginning to split in two."

Annan welcome back defender Steven Swinglehurst from suspension.

The defender served a one-game ban last weekend after being dismissed during the defeat against Clyde.

Striker Graeme Bell continues to be ruled out with a groin problem and midfielder Lewis Sloan is a doubt as the Galabank side look to end a run of three straight defeats.

Manager Harry Cairney said: "We finished strongly against Queen's Park, scoring twice in the last minute, and I am looking for us to build on that.

"A win would lift us above Peterhead in the table and that would make a long journey on a cold day very worthwhile.

"They have been strong at home all season so we know that we have to play well to take anything."
