Peterhead manager Jim McInally was delighted with his side’s performance that saw the Blue Toon put seven past Cowdenbeath at Balmoor.

The match was perfect preparation for the teams upcoming Scottish Cup game against Livingston, allowing McInally a chance to see the players available for that game.

McInally said:“Bearing in mind the players that weren’t involved today, we showed how good we can be.

“We were terrific and Leighton and Rory just ripped them apart.

“I’m delighted we were able to enjoy the game and I even managed to sit in my chair which doesn’t happen often.

“It could easily have been ten.

“Leighton showed his pace and also linked up play.

“His confidence is high and he looks like scoring every time his plays.

“That is the best I have seen Rory play in a long time and he was sitting looking miserable at half time because he hadn’t scored but he set up a couple as well.

“Jordan Brown is someone I see playing the Gary McDonald role and I have said that to him before, he can get in the area and score and every game he gets chances.

Looking forward to next Saturday’s Scottish Cup game McInally believes that his teams performance is enough to put the frighteners up Livingstone.

He said: “Livingstone are a good side but they won’t look forward to coming here and the team I played today is the side I had in mind for Saturday with the loan players not allowed to play.”
