Jim McInally has challenged his Peterhead players to give themselves more days to remember in cup competitions.
The Blue Toon take on Alloa Athletic at Balmoor tomorrow in the Scottish Cup third round with the chance to reach the potentially lucrative round four.
The Buchan club have played in many glamour cup games in recent years.
They’ve faced Celtic in the Scottish Cup, Rangers in last season’s Challenge Cup final, and also taken on the Gers and Dundee in this season’s League Cup and Dundee United in the Challenge Cup.
McInally and his players want more big occasions to come their way by getting past Alloa.
Boss McInally said: “Every club looks for big games.
“We’ve just been lucky in the last few years that we’ve played in a lot of big games and when you get a taste of it you want to keep doing it.”
Alloa are fourth in League One, six points ahead of sixth placed Peterhead, they also thumped the Blue Toon for 4-0 in the first league game of the season.
McInally believes it will be a different story this weekend, and said: “It will be difficult, the 4-0 game, I didn’t feel it was a fair reflection.
“We had a lot of the ball that day and we had a lot of shots at goal and they kept catching us on the break.
“We’ve picked up and I hope we will take confidence from last week’s 2-1 win at Livingston.”
Ryan Strachan is out injured, but captain Simon Ferry and Jamie Redman are available.
