Peterhead midfielder Jordon Brown hopes he can play a more prominent role in the Blue Toon’s push for promotion.
It has been a frustrating season for the former Aberdeen player, who has made only four league starts this season.
However, the 22-year-old admits his side’s impressive form means he cannot com-plain too much about his limited game time.
The Blue Toon have taken 13 points from a possible 15 in their last five matches.
Brown said: “It has been a frustrating season for me but I just need to keep working hard. The manager knows what I can do. It is difficult when the team is doing well but I just need to keep my head down, be patient and take advantage of any chances I get.”
Peterhead have a League 1 date at Forfar today and Brown added: “We know how tough it will be. Forfar are having a good season. They are still challenging near the top but we are quietly confident.”
The Blue Toon are sitting sixth, 10 points behind leaders Stranraer. But they have three games in hand over the leaders and Brown knows the Balmoor men can propel themselves into the title race if they keep winning.
He added: “The table is a bit false as we have three midweek games still to play. We are confident of our own ability and winning the league last year gave us a lot of belief. A lot of the teams in the league have been getting a lot of credit this season but no one is really speaking about us. We are happy to stay under the radar and, hopefully, do as well as we can.”
Peterhead defender Scott Ross returns from suspension but midfielder Dean Cowie and forward Nicky Riley are both injury doubts.
The Blue Toon sit on the shoulder of the top four and manager Jim McInally reckons their cover will be blown if they see off the Loons today.
McInally said: “We have not had much attention as there are sides in this league on strong runs.
“Ray McKinnon has led Brechin to 14 games undefeated and we are the only team in nine games to have beaten Airdrie.
“Stranraer went four months without losing a game so, while we are doing well, we do not need to shout about it. If we win this game our lack of attention may change as it would put us right in among things.”
