Kerr adds to Peterhead options

Peterhead manager Jim McInally has a terrific problem to solve ahead of in-form Dunfermline visiting, as he only has Steven Noble missing through injury and has added Cammy Kerr from Dundee on loan.

Noble is nursing a hamstring problem, while Kerr's signature means the full-back will stay with Peterhead until January 2016.

McInally said: "It is not just the numbers that are good as I have a lot of players who are playing really well and deserve a starting place.

"After hitting five goals in midweek to knock Falkirk out of the Petrofac Cup it would be fair to say that Rory McAllister will play however I have a lot of other decisions to make."

"I have to get those decisions correct as Dunfermline have looked strong."

The only disappointment in Dunfermline's excellent start to the season was the broken leg suffered by Ryan Williamson in the midweek 3-0 win at Forfar.

Williamson's injury will see manager Allan Johnston forced to change his starting line-up for the first time in six games with the East End Park boss saying: "We have done well this season but so have Peterhead so we cannot take anything for granted.

"Rory McAllister can be a frightening player to play against as Falkirk discovered in midweek and he will have increased confidence so will be well worth watching.

"Peterhead will challenge at the top this season so this will be tough."
