Peterhead manager Jim McInally has called for focus as his side being a season defining run of games.
The Blue Toon boss believes December and January will go a long way to shaping his club’s prospects of winning the League 2 title this season but insists his players are in confident mood as they prepare for today’s game against Edinburgh City at Balmoor.
He said: “It’s the same three points on offer as if we are playing Stirling but every game is huge between now and the end of January as these are the defining months of our season.
“We feel we are building momentum at the right time and we need to as it is going to be a busy period.”
Following the postponement of last Saturday’s trip to Stirling, the Blue Toon face three games in a week with the game rescheduled for Tuesday.
Having also seen a league game postponed due to his side’s Scottish Cup exploits McInally is keen to avoid further disruption to the calendar in the coming weeks.
He said: “I’ll only know if having last weekend off was good for us if we beat Edinburgh City.
“It looked as if the guys who were 50-50 would all have been able to play at Stirling but for them having a couple of extra days to recover has helped and everyone will be that little bit fitter.
“We need them to be as we now have a big week ahead of with the Stirling game rearranged for Tuesday before we play Clyde at Balmoor next weekend.
“We hope we don’t suffer too many postponements as our reward for beating Raith Rovers in the Scottish Cup is a cancellation of a league game away to Annan.
“That will have to be rescheduled for a midweek later in the season and that’s challenging for part-time clubs when it comes to trying to get players off their work to play.”
