Peterhead V Montrose at Balmoor Stadium - Match Preview

Peterhead pair miss out

Peterhead will be without Callum MacDonald and David Cox as they look to move to the top the League Two table for the first time this season by defeating Montrose.

MacDonald and Cox have been out recently with knee and foot injuries respectively and they are set to remain on the sidelines on Saturday. However, Ryan Strachan is available after injury.

Manager Jim McInally is determined that his side improve their home form, he said: "We are unbeaten at home but only won once as we have had five draws. It is time to turn draws into wins and that would give me more satisfaction at this stage of the season than going top.

"Montrose have a good battling spirit that we will need to overcome."

Montrose welcome back defender Alan Campbell after three months out as they look for the win that would move them from sixth place to second in a tightly-packed table.

Work commitments continue to keep Lloyd Young out and on-loan St Johnstone defender Gareth Rodger is absent with a knee problem.

Manager Stuart Garden said: "We were 3-1 down with three minutes to go and we came back to draw," said Garden. "That is a measure of the character that we have and we will need to dig deep into that again against a good Peterhead side."
