Stenhousemuir v Peterhead

Mar 22, 2024

Peterhead travel to Ochilview Park on Saturday as The Blue Toon face Stenhousemuir in a 3pm kick off.

Playing the 30th match of the season, Peterhead will aim to strengthen their grip on second place and pull away from Dumbarton and Spartans who are hot on The Blue Toon’s heels. With hosts Stenhousemuir coming off the back of two consecutive draws to Forfar Athletic and Spartans, Peterhead also go into the fixture off the back of a draw with East Fife.

Ahead of Saturday’s match, Jordon Brown shares his thoughts:

“The whole group are really excited for a big game that we can test ourselves against the best team in the league and the team that have shown the most consistency over the course of the season. We know as a squad we have been improving and putting together strong periods of performances within games and are working on putting that together for 90 minutes. I feel the whole league has improved since January and that’s shown in the different results right across the division however with 1 defeat in 9 we are looking to finish the season as strong as possible and in as high a position as possible. The boys have trained well again this week and we have a more settled shape and structure again with more of the group building towards peak fitness. We want to show we have developed a lot since our last visit to Stenhousemuir and it’s also the only ground we haven’t scored at this season so will be looking to put that right. There is a determination within the group that we don’t want to let there be any meaningless games come the end of the season. Squad wise is pretty similar to how we were, Joe McKee will have a late fitness test but Alfie comes back into full contention having scored another 3 for Aberdeen youth team midweek. Scott Ross and David Wilson are not quite ready to return to the squad.”

Result dependent, Peterhead have the opportunity to put a five point gap between themselves and Dumbarton and Spartans; however should Stenhousemuir come out on top, the Falkirk side will move eighteen points clear at the top with six games to play.
