Peterhead manager Jim McInally knows the rest of League 1 is lining up to be the team to end his side’s impressive unbeaten run.
The Blue Toon have not been beaten in its last 15 games, having put together an impressive sequence of 11 wins and four draws.
The form has taken Peterhead up to second in the division, but as they travel to Albion Rovers today McInally knows the rest of the league is targeting his side.
He said: “We know we are now a target for other teams. Brechin City went on a great unbeaten run last season and we used that as motivation when we played them – we beat them to end that run, so we know what other teams will be thinking every week when they play us.
“We’re going to a place on Saturday where there won’t be much football played and the pitch is not the best, but we are ready to roll our sleeves up and get stuck in.
“We’ve lost at Albion Rovers already this season so we know exactly what awaits us.”
Steven Noble and Ally Gilchrist will miss the game due to suspension while Leighton McIntosh is a doubt with an ankle injury, but McInally is counting on the replacements to play their part and maintain the club’s outstanding form.
He said: “It’s the easiest job in the world at the minute being the Peterhead manager, but that’s all down to the players.
“We’ve had a few injuries and suspensions but the players haven’t grumbled – they’ve just got on with and whoever has been called on has come in done their job.
“They’ve all been brilliant and I expect that to continue.
“We’re missing two more due to suspensions while Leighton injured his ankle in training on Wednesday. We don’t know how bad the injury is yet but we’ve got a good squad and it is up to the players to fill the void.”
