Ryan Conroy hopes being good this Christmas can see Peterhead rewarded with three points.
The Blue Toon tackle Clyde at Balmoor this afternoon looking for some festive cheer after defeats by Airdrieonians and East Fife.
Over the festive period footballers are careful not to lose conditioning by over-indulging themselves in the food and drink on offer at this time of year.
For midfielder Conroy, it’s become natural to make sure he doesn’t allow enjoying too much Christmas to hamper his performances.
But the 32-year-old hopes the Buchan outfit’s squad making sure they are properly prepared for today’s game will see them rewarded with three points.
Conroy said: “We trained on Christmas Eve and then did some work on Thursday as well.
“So you have to keep yourself ticking over and not have too much turkey.
“It’s easy enough to look after yourself.
“Sometimes you would maybe like to enjoy yourself a bit more, but I’ve been a footballer for 16 years so I just naturally watch what I’m doing at this time of year.
“And if we can then play well and get a result on Saturday that’s your reward and makes the effort you put in worthwhile.”
Following back-to-back, losses Peterhead can climb back above Clyde and into seventh in the League 1 table with a victory.
Jim McInally’s men have Forfar Athletic just a point behind them in the relegation play-off place.
Conroy knows the importance of a win today, adding: “We can’t let our heads go down. I know that we’re capable of beating anybody in the league.”
