Blue Toon boss Jim McInally was full of praise for his troops after a thrilling week which saw them defeat Falkirk in the Petrofac Training Cup and take all three points against Dunfermline on Saturday.

Rory McAllister was on fire as he scored five goals against Falkirk early in the week, with another on Saturday taking his tally to eight goals in just seven days.

And there was nothing but praise from McInally as his side now sits second in League One two points behind Forfar.

Speaking after Saturday’s game, he told the Buchanie: “That was a magnificent three points.

“Midway through the second half I would have taken a point because they were miles better than us and we were tiring badly after a tough cup tie at Falkirk in midweek.

“We have now played three or four games without recognised full backs so we needed a good bit of luck and some great goalkeeping to and got both.

“We have always got goals in us and it was a terrific three points.

“It was a tousy , physical game but Dunfermline are a right good side with some clever players and I thought they might pick us off at some point.

“We lost Cammy Kerr to suspension and hopefully you will be hearing more about that as it was a shocking decision by the SFA as he was suspended from a development game with Dundee.

“He would have been allowed to play for Dundee today but not for Peterhead so hopefully we can get clarification on this.

“Scott Ross called off with food poisoning but that was the starting eleven from the game at Stranraer so we just let them get on with it,” he said.

Peterhead will travel to Airdrie on Saturday.

Their hosts are currently lying sixth in the table with just one win this season.

Meanwhile, off the pitch, Cammy Kerr has signed a loan deal to take him to the Blue Toon until January next year.

McInally had been chasing the player for a while now and was delighted to eventually secure the services of the attacking full-back.

And The Blue Toon has been drawn against Stenhousemuir in the quarter-finals of the Petrofac Training Cup.

They recently drew 2-2 with Stenhousemuir at Peterhead but will be hoping to progress to the semis in their next encounter.
