Summer recruit Scott Brown believes Peterhead’s fortunes will turn around if they keep playing the way that have so far this season.
The former St Johnstone midfielder believes The Blue Toon are playing well and have been unlucky not to get the results.
Speaking after Saturday’s 2-1 loss to Brechin at Glebe Park he said: “I thought we did really well particularly in the second half when we battered them and their only real chance was the goal near the end.
“Things just aren’t going for us just now but we need to keep doing the right things and they will turn our way.
“To get nothing was completely demoralising after the way we played but Brechin at near the top and seem to be grinding out results.
“We need to keep playing the way we have been but getting something to show for it.
“I’m enjoying my time at Peterhead and settling in well.
“It’s been a bit of a change going from full-time football but the onus is on me to keep myself fit.”
Peterhead manager Jim McInally is also confident his side can climb the table if they continue to play the way they have.
He said: “The boys are gutted but if they keep playing like that they won’t be where they are for much longer.
“A bad decision by the goalie cost us, he came for a ball he shouldn’t have as the boy had a lot to do and the defender could maybe have cleared.
“The goal just before was a bad one as well, in the build up we dipped our toe into tackles a couple of times like the second goal instead of being stronger but that’s the way it goes sometimes.
“The first half was pretty even but it was a disappointing time to lose a goal but there was a lot of good football in the second half and I told the players I would rather we finished bottom playing like that because it was decent and football can be a cruel game.
“Maybe it was my fault as I put on substitutes to try and win the game but I would always try and do that.”
Next up for Peterhead will be a home tie against Livingston this Saturday.
