Peterhead secured all three points against Ayr United on Saturday.
Fans attending this pre-Christmas fixture were no doubt hoping to be blown away by the Peterhead performance and that’s exactly what happened, in both senses of the phrase!
A stiff breeze helped secure a handsome victory for the home sidewith some fine goals, albeit wind assisted in some case Blue Toon boss Jim McInally was delighted with the victory which keeps Peterhead in fourth spot but hot on the heels of those above them.
“I’m absolutely delighted with the three points,” he said.
“We knew with the strong wind it was going to be a case of getting to half time without conceding and we got there well although Smithy had to make some saves.
“The difference was that we played better with the wind and it was good for the fans to see a goal like Kevin’s.
“I felt sorry for poor Rory. He scored one of the goals of the season but the referee says he had already blown his whistle and apologised. I said to them before the game that Ayr were a benchmark. They have been up there all season and I think we matched them.
“Jamie Redman did well in defence but I prefer to be playing him further forward but we were forced into it with Scott Ross having to come off with an ankle injury. That is a problem area for us and we need to try and strengthen and we will do that in the next few weeks.”
Peterhead’s next match will be on Boxing Day when they will travel to the Excelsior Stadium to face Airdrieonians.
