Peterhead midfielder Jordon Brown believes one win is all it takes to get the Blue Toon’s title challenge back on track.
A frustrating February continued for Jim McInally’s side last Saturday as it was held at home by Berwick Rangers.
The 1-1 result keeps Peterhead six points behind leaders Montrose, who have played two games more, and the Blue Toon get the chance to play those extra games and return to the top in the next seven days.
Brown, whose side travels to Annan tonight, said: “It does feel as if the fact we haven’t won this month has become a monkey on our backs and we need to put that right.
“We need to get that winning feeling back.
“It’s been a strange couple of weeks for us. We had such a good run before Christmas and carried it on into the new year but we seem to have come unstuck recently and nobody is really sure why.
“We’ve been desperate for the games in hand to come around and now they are here we’ve got a massive week ahead of us with Annan followed by Cowdenbeath on Saturday then Clyde at Balmoor next Tuesday.
“It’s vital we make them count but it won’t be easy. Annan is always a difficult game, especially away and on their pitch, but we can go their having played well in the second half on Saturday and we know we’ll be three points off the top if we win.”
The 1-1 draw with Berwick on Saturday was the latest in a disappointing run of one win in the last four matches and Brown admits it has been a frustrating period for his club.
He said: “The boys were gutted after Saturday. It was a poor result for us. We were desperate to take all three points and we probably deserved to win it after our second-half performance.
“I hit the crossbar and we missed a few other chances so it was frustrating afternoon for us.”
