AFTER a rollercoaster season full of highs and lows, Peterhead FC have booked themselves a place in this week’s playoffs.
They face Queen’s Park down at Hampden tomorrow (Wednesday) with a crucial home game at Balmoor on Saturday at 3pm.
And this weekend’s match must surely prompt a display of the massive Peterhead support we have seen for the likes of the Rangers and Celtic clashes in months gone by.
While Peterhead gained the psychological advantage with a 3-0 win over the Spiders on Saturday, it will all come down to which fanbase can cheer on their respective side.
Toon boss Jim McInally says he is taking nothing for granted, despite a comfortable away win on Saturday and says there should be no signs of complacency for his players.
McInally said Saturday’s result was “brilliant”, with Peterhead ending their season in second place behind league champions Rangers.
Peterhead FC chairman, Rodger Morrison, praised the team, and manager McInally, for their efforts and hopes that Balmoor will be packed for Saturday’s crucial tie.
“We had started off well in the league then took a bit of a dip in form, but things have certainly turned around and to have eight games without defeat is fantastic,” he said. “Hopefully we can get a packed house on Saturday to cheer them on and the supporters will come out in force to help the side get promotion.”
