Peterhead face Clyde tomorrow as The Blue Toon return to Balmoor for a 3pm kick off.
Peterhead and Bonnyrigg Rose Athletic shared equal points when the two sides met last weekend; with a wonder goal courtesy of Joe McKee sealing the point as the match finished 1-1.
Peterhead and Clyde last faced off in August at New Douglas Park where The Blue Toon came away with all 3 points; after two first half goals from Conor O’Keefe and Kieran Shanks secured the 2-1 victory. Despite his match winning goal however, Shanks as well as Clyde’s Eric Sula both saw red late on, leaving both teams with 10 men in the final minutes of the fixture. With goals from either side and a sending off each, there is no doubt Saturday’s match will be a thrilling contest. Regardless of the challenges presented by the southern Glasgow side during the reverse fixture, Clyde currently occupy last place in League 2; four points adrift of 9th place Elgin City and 21 points behind Peterhead in 2nd place.
Although Clyde trail Peterhead by eight league places, Jordon Brown outlines the importance of Saturday’s match and how Clyde are not to be overlooked:
“Looking forward to being back at home again against a team that we have probably came up against the most often in the last few seasons; however we are aware they will come with a different outlook now under new management on the back of a couple of positive results. It has felt like there has been a bit of stop-start feel to the league games in the last couple of months but we now have 2 home games before Christmas that we can look to end the year postively in front of our own fans and then an exciting game at Elgin before New Year. Last weekend was a good battling point in really testing conditions all round but we have had a good session all together during the week and everyone is focused on getting 3 points tomorrow. Team news wise we have had some illness and niggles that we are managing, it will be too soon for Jason but positive on the long term front is that Kieran Gibbons and Conner Duthie have now both been operated on and will begin the next stage of their recoveries.”
There will be segregation for this match with Clyde fans using the away turnstiles. There will not be catering within the stadium for away fans but snacks will be sold from the cofee shop at Balmoor prior to the match and at half-time.
The social club will be open for both home and away fans.
