Peterhead entertain their former Highland League rivals Elgin City and manager Jim McInally does not believe that his League 2 leaders are any bigger a target now than they were at the start of the season.

McInally said: “We have gone top and 8 games without defeat however that does not mean teams are any more determined to beat us. At the start of the season we were installed as favourites and we have been a target ever since then.”

“The boys are used to it and just get on with things.  Elgin will be tough opponents but every team we play in this league are tough opponents.”

“We were not great at Berwick on Saturday but ground out a win. Hopefully we can play better and see off Elgin to start the New Year on a high.”

The Blue Toon have lost Reece Donaldson after Raith Rovers recalled the on-loan defender and Graeme Sharp is a doubt due to a hip problem with Dean Richardson Callum MacDonald and David Cox all remaining out with knocks.

Elgin will have Ray Jellema in goal for their trip to Balmoor after they appealed the red card he received against Annan on Saturday with manager Ross Jack saying: “Ray will play as we believe that we have a good case for an appeal. We are not being critical of the referee Alan Newlands however we believe that a mistake was made as we had a player on the goalline and the ball was going away from the goal.”

Jack reckons that keeping the attacking duo of Andy Rodgers and Rory McAllister quiet will be key to his side succeeding as he explained: “Rory is on fire just now and it is not enough to try and snuff him out as Andy Rodgers is really capable as well. We have to keep both of them quiet to do anything.”

Injuries keep Brian Cameron and Paul Millar out and Jamie Duff is a major doubt with a groin injury.
