Peterhead boss Jim McInally was “delighted” to see Jordon Brown get back on the scoresheet.
The midfielder scored the only goal of the game as the Blue Toon beat in-form Albion Rovers 1-0.
The result moves the club up to eighth in the table.
And now Peterhead are just three points off fourth after their back-to-back wins.
The goal was Brown’s first in League One since netting against Airdrie on Boxing Day.
And McInally was pleased to see the 23-year-old get a reward for his attacking play.
He said: “I can’t remember Jordon playing a game for us where he’s never had a chance to score a goal, which for a midfield player is pretty remarkable, he’s just got that knack.”
He added: “Jordon is always in my mind because he’s a terrific trainer and he’s got a great attitude, so he’s never far from my thoughts.
“I’m delighted he got the goal because he felt he should have scored last week and I’m so pleased for him.”
McInally said it was “not a game I would have liked to have paid for.”
The pitch made things difficult for both sides to get the ball down.
But McInally feels the Blue Toon were the better side at the Exsel Group Stadium.
He said: “We deserved to win it, we did the dirty side of the game better than the opposition.
“We took a lot out of it purely because it was a wee bit different.
“In every aspect of the game, we were better.”
