Peterhead 1 - 1 Berwick Rangers

Honours even Balmoor

Rory McAllister and Darren Lavery scored in the opening six minutes as Berwick held Peterhead to a 1-1 draw.

The Blue Toon took the lead in the fifth minute when McAllister's superb free-kick found the top corner of Marc McCallum's net from 35 yards out, but their advantage was short-lived.

Darren Lavery pulled Berwick level one minute later when he found the top left of goal from just outside the penalty area after good work from fellow striker Dylan Easton on the right channel in the build up to the goal.

The match could have gone either way as both teams had a number of chances in the second half, but it ended all square as both teams defended well.

Smith sits out Berwick visit

Peterhead defender Ross Smith will miss out against Berwick.

Smith is suspended after he was sent off during the goalless draw against Annan in midweek.

However, Scott McLaughlin and Rory McAllister return from bans and Bryan Gilfillan has been added to the squad after arriving from Clyde.

Ryan Strachan is out with an ankle injury and knee problems keep Callum Macdonald and Davie Ross on the sidelines.

Meanwhile, former Scotland striker Robbie Winters has had his contract with the Blue Toon cancelled by mutual consent.

Balmoor boss Jim McInally said: "We have not won in our last four games so we are looking to put that right.

"We will need to play well as Berwick have one of the best midfield combinations in this division. They can keep the ball off you for fun so we have to work hard."

Goalkeeper Marc McCallum will make his first start for Berwick against one of his former clubs.

McCallum has joined Rangers on loan from Dundee United and spent the first few months of the season with Peterhead.

The Borderers will also include new striker Scott Dalziel, who has joined from Brechin City, and defender Dougie Bryson returns after a one-game ban.

Only long-term injury absentees Dene Droudge (knee) and Marc Lancaster (back) will not be making the long trip north.

Shielfield manager Ian Little said: "Our aim this season was to get into the play-offs and a win at Peterhead would certainly help us achieve that.

"We have not played for three weeks due to the weather and they played Annan on Tuesday night so we have to ensure that we are not caught cold at the start of the game."
