New signing Josh Rae is dreaming of a Peterhead debut at Tannadice.
The goalkeeper, who joined the Blue Toon earlier this week, will battle it out with Lenny Wilson for a starting spot between the sticks this term.
The Buchan outfit begin their season against Dundee United in the League Cup group stage tomorrow.
Rae, 19, said: “I couldn’t ask for anything better than to make my debut on Saturday at Tannadice, if I get the chance.
“The only bad thing is there will be no fans there, if I play hopefully I can do well and kick on from there.
“It would be unbelievable if I had a clean sheet at Tannadice, but if I play I’m sure there will be a few things for me to do so I’ll need to be switched on for the full game.
“But hopefully come 5pm we will have got a positive result.”
Former Celtic and Leeds youth goalkeeper Rae had trials with Sunderland and West Brom during the summer.
However, he is determined to play first team football rather than remain an academy goalkeeper so opted for part-time Peterhead instead.
Rae added: “I was in at Sunderland and played a game with them and felt I did well.
“But I was told I would only be a training and development goalkeeper – but I want to play senior football so that move didn’t happen.
“Then I also had a trial with West Brom, but it was similar to Sunderland.
“But I decided I wanted to play first-team football and build a career for myself so I decided Peterhead would be the best place to do that.
“Joining Peterhead gives me a good platform and League One should be a good league this season so I’m looking forward to it.”
