Albion Rovers v Peterhead

Recommended Posts

Cliftonhill for thrills tomorrow??? well maybe not but hopefully a few goals and The Blue Toon get back on the Title Track. A sapping corrugated pitch will encourage route 1 tactics and if Jim’s men try silky skills football the could pay the price. An ideal game for a Peter Crouch type player who wins balls in the air and brings others into play by his excellent play but where can PFC find one of those.

 

My prediction Albion 2 - 4 Peterhead and back in Dumfries for 7, jobs a guid yin!

Decent first half from Rovers, matching P€t€rh€ad in all departments. Goalkeeping calamity gifts the visitors a lead early in second and that was us beaten. Rovers fans criticising the referee for not stopping play ahead of the second goal were wrong: there was no significant head injury to either of the Rovers defenders who collided.

Wouldn’t have complained if Rovers went in at at least 1 up at 1/2 time. In a suspected route 1 half Peterhead were 2nd best for the first 25 minutes. Rory goes of injured, we immediately now have a midfield and are on the front foot forcing a corner in less than a minute. Del is fighting manfully without Rory to assist him but one against four is some ask. Second half The Blue Toon start to assert themselves and Dow wins a comedic battle with the keeper to open the scoring, when Rusty comes on for Jack there is some help up top for Del and Rusty helps himself to a goal one on one with keeper, game to all-intents and purposes. Liked 2 and 4 for Albion, Rovers announcer the most entertainment at the game, his announcements, befriending visitors and hus humour a credit to Coatbridge .
Some zoomers supporting the Albion players who fave no less than 100%, the claims of Silky Football, judgement of Ted and Officials and Decisions were so off the mark they were embarrasing.
Finally the Albion Rovers “Fan” who had a tirade at the officials as they were escorted to their changing rooms disgraced himself and Club and I had to explain to a six year old that was not the way fans should behave and that that fan showed his Club in a very poor light.
Good effort Rovers and good fortune for the rest if the season. Job done Peterhead, hope the manager finally accepts who will get them promoted on the pitch.

As is often the case looking for silky fitba on the Cliftonhill surface is a big ask. In general it was a hard watch but at least we got our win which is never a bad thing. From a Rovers point of view thought your team kept battling away which shows a bit of spirit, think they will give teams some trouble especially at home.

I heard about this and agree it's no way to behave. I'm told that the ref did explain himself despite the manner he in which he was challenged which, if true, does him great credit.

To the game, the better team edged it. O.K. we lost through mistakes but good teams capitalise on those and Peterhead are a very good team at this level. Rovers, on the other hand, are improving all the time, and a win is due. The game again Stirling at the end of the month has to be the target for Kevin's first win. Unfortunately, next week is free as Cowden play Rangers but that should hopefully allow Kevin to do even more work with what is very much becoming his team.
