In the run up to the potentially title-clinching clash with Clyde at Broadwood on Saturday, Peterhead manager Jim McInally did not hide that fact his side are keen to silence the Bully Wee support.

The Broadwood faithful are known to be amongst the most vociferous in Scotland’s lower leagues and have never been shy about voicing their dislike of the Blue Toon, either from the stands or online.

McInally said: “Next week will be tough because Clyde are now looking over their shoulder.

“But it will be good to go down there and put a spoke in their wheels because they’re a support who tend to give us a lot of stick.”

Peterhead’s manager also sent out a message to those detractors who see his side as little more than workman-like.

“Sometimes our players don’t get the credit they’re due. If other managers keep calling us a ‘well organised side’ I actually think we’re better than that.

“There’s a wee bit more to them than being well organised.

“There’s a good mix to what they do, we always set out to stop the opposition and then we know we’ve got the quality up front to win us games.”

All three of McInally’s senior strikers played together against Montrose - Rory McAllister, Andy Rodgers and Fraser McLaren have scored 41 goals between them.
