Bavidge doubt for Blue Toon
Peterhead have injury doubts over attacking duo Martin Bavidge and Graeme Sharp for their must-win match at home to Brechin City.
Defender Daniel Moore and frontman Connor Gethins have both already been ruled out, with recently-appointed Blue Toon boss John Sheran pleased to learn that opposing striker Rory McAllister is banned for the game.
Sheran said: "From what I have learned during my time here Rory has been a thorn in Peterhead's side on many occasions.
"They are not a one man team but the players seem to be very glad that he is not about as it lessons their threat.
"It is a must-win game and hopefully we can secure it and go forward with confidence."
Brechin City could be without seven first team regulars for the trip.
Striking duo of Rory McAllister and David McKenna are suspended and Gerry McLauchlan, Paul McLean, Ewan Moyes Jamie Redman and Mitchel Megginson are all struggling for fitness.
Glebe Park boss Jim Weir said: "Our squad is simply not big enough to cope with this number of absentees so I have to hope at least three of the doubts can be patched up and put out.
"We are on a bad run just now which is a big concern but hopefully we can put that to a stop at Peterhead.
"I am sure they were delighted to hear that Rory is not playing as he destroyed them in the game up at their place when we won 5-0."
Promotion hopefuls held
Relegation-bound Peterhead earned a 1-1 draw at home to promotion-chasing Brechin.
It was the home side that had the early chances, but Martin Bavidge and Nicky Clark both failed to hit the target with their efforts.
However, in the 39th minute a left-footed free-kick by Neil Janczyk was parried clear by Paul Jarvie but Mitchel Megginson was on hand to follow up and give Brechin the lead.
The advantage was short-lived, though, as Clark pounced on a chance in the six-yard box just three minutes later and restored parity with a calm finish.
Ryan Strachan nearly gave Peterhead the lead in spectacular fashion midway through the second half but Craig Nelson turned his 35-yard drive over the crossbar with his fingertips.
Strachan's next chance came shortly after from the penalty spot following Janczyk`s handball, but another brilliant stop from Nelson denied the striker as Brechin held on for a point.
