Peterhead 2 Forfar Athletic 0

Wednesday, 20 July 2016 16:15


The ‘Loons’ went down 2-0 to League One side Peterhead in their second game in Group A of the Betfred Cup at the Balmoor Stadium on Tuesday night.

Both the home goals came in a first half during which the ‘Blue Toon’ outfit have the upper hand.

Early in the game Rory McAllister missed a chance to give the home side the lead, before Gavin Swankie sent a curling free-kick from 22 yards just wide of the upright.
The opening counter arrived on the twenty minute mark and it came courtesy of an own goal from Andy Munro.   The luckless defender turned a Nathan Blockley right wing cross past Grant Adam from four yards out.
The second goal arrived thirteen minutes later.   Referee Gavin Ross and his stand side assistant decided between them that Gavin Swankie had impeded Nicky Riley just inside the box and McAllister made no mistake from the resultant spot-kick.
Both teams had chances in the second period, Forfar coming closest in the dying embers of the contest when a Jim Lister shot was deflected on to the crossbar by the out stretched leg of a home defender.

Gary Bollan’s side now have a week and two training sessions to ‘lick their wounds’ before the ‘on fire’ East Fife visit Station Park on Tuesday night of next week in what will be the home sides third game in the group, the Fifers fourth and final.

The Manager will hope to at least welcome back Jamie Bain and Tam O’Brien to the fold for this fixture, both unavailable last night due to suspension and work commitments respectively.
