Match Preview : Peterhead FC v Berwick Rangers – Ladbrokes League Two

The ‘Gers travel to Balmoor tomorrow for a 3pm clash with high-flying Peterhead, who are challenging again in League Two this season after narrowly missing out on promotion to League One in 2017/18.

Jim McInally and his side have started the league campaign well, with a 0-1 home defeat by league leaders Edinburgh FC as their only blemish so far, sitting in 2nd place.

The Blue Toon bounced back from an IRN-Bru cup exit at the hands of Irish side Bohemians with a thrilling 2-4 victory away at Cowdenbeath last time out. Coming from behind to seal the points.

League Two Player of the Month of August, Rory McAllister, will be looking to add to his already impressive tally of 5 league goals already this campaign.

This is Berwick’s 11th away game at Peterhead FC in their history. Winning 2 and scoring 12 goals in the previous 10 encounters.
