The Spartans v Peterhead

May 7, 2024

After a quick turnaround from Saturday where Peterhead’s playoff opponents were confirmed, The Blue Toon travel south to once again face The Spartans on Tuesday evening.

With a kickoff time of 19:45, this will be Peterhead’s first playoff match as they aim for promotion into league one. Playing over two legs, the deciding result will come from Saturday’s match against The Spartans when they make the trip north to Balmoor. To date, Peterhead only have one win over Tuesday’s opponents this season from five matches played in all competitions. The Blue Toon most recently faced The Spartans a little over a week ago when a late own goal rescued a point for Peterhead in a 2-2 draw.

Ahead of Peterhead’s first playoff fixture, Jordon Brown has his say:

“Everyone within the group and around the club have patiently waited for this night since we confirmed our place a few weeks ago and on the back of securing 2nd on Saturday we cannot wait to get out there tonight. The buzz of Balmoor on Saturday on and off the pitch was great and we will be doing what we can to bring a good result up the road for another positive day this week. We have all worked extremely hard for this opportunity this season and given ourselves a chance to get over a final hurdle and win a play off. We know how difficult play offs are personally and know there are records to set straight for Peterhead too who have had our fair share of play off heartache in the past. We are all happy with how the season has went overall but there is a real focus and determination within the group to get this club back to league 1 and feel only by doing that will mean real success. Another record we have to set straight is our head-to-head with Spartans having already played them 5 times this season. We know how good a side they are and we will give them the same respect and preparation we have given them every time this year, with how close every game against them has been we know it will be decided by fine margins. Squad wise Peter Pawlett will likely miss out tonight which is clearly a huge blow as he has raised the standards throughout the squad to a new level. But we have said it all season we have full belief the squad depth and quality is there, as seen particularly 1st half on Saturday where we made numerous changes and arguably had one of our best halves of the season. The fans I’m sure will travel in their numbers tonight and deserve away success and to head back up the road counting down to Saturday!”
