Nobody was more frustrated by Peterhead’s failure to hold out against relegation rivals Forfar than Greg Fleming.
Now the Blue Toon keeper is determined to end a run of four games without a clean sheet when they face League 1’s bottom side Stranraer on Saturday.
The Buchan outfit looked set to pick up a vital victory in their bid to move away from the relegation zone on Tuesday night at Balmoor.
Jim McInally’s men led the Loons courtesy of Steven Boyd’s strike, but Steven Doris’s looping header eight minutes from time earned the Angus side a share of the spoils.
The result means Peterhead are still only two points clear of Forfar who occupy the relegation play-off spot and also have a game in hand.
Fleming was disappointed the Blue Toon couldn’t keep a clean sheet against the Loons, but hopes they can shut out Stranraer on Saturday.
The 33-year-old said: “It was a difficult one to take, losing a goal late on. But the main thing is we’ve not lost, but we need to focus on Saturday and hopefully we can win at Stranraer.”
Stranraer are 10 points behind Peterhead at the foot of the table, but have only lost once in the league in 2020.
After Tuesday’s draw at Balmoor and eighth-placed Clyde’s loss at Dumbarton little has changed at the bottom of League 1, but Fleming is hoping for a win at Stair Park to push the Blue Toon away from sides below them.
The former Ayr stopper added: “In terms of table nothing has changed with Tuesday’s results.
“Hopefully now we can go and get a better result on Saturday and it will change the table and we can kick on from it.”
