Peterhead have won their last seven games – but Ryan Dow says they can still get better.

The Blue Toon have been on a fine run over the last couple of months with the winning streak taking them to the top of League Two and into the Scottish Cup third round.

Jim McInally’s men will look to continue their good form tomorrow against Queen’s Park at Hampden.

Ross County loanee Dow believes there is still more to come from the Buchan team.

The midfielder said: “We’ve set our own high standards, and some of the games we’ve come in at half-time or full-time and been disappointed.

“At the weekend against Albion Rovers we could have been 5-0 ahead at half-time, but only being two up was tricky, as in the second half the wind was in their favour.

“There have been a few games like that where we felt we could have won a bit more clearly.

“Hopefully, tomorrow can be a game where we take all of our chances and make it easier for ourselves. We’ve been on a great run, playing some good football in tough games and I feel there is still more to come.”

Peterhead went top last Saturday after beating Albion Rovers 2-1 and seeing Edinburgh City lose 1-0 to Clyde.

Now that they are at the summit, Dow wants the Blue Toon to push on and added: “Both us and Edinburgh City have been on a good run and we’ve probably both been examining each others’ results every week, looking at what could happen.

“Nobody had been slipping up, but then they got a defeat last week and now is our time to capitalise on that and keep our run going.

“They are chasing us now and we just need to manage that and keep winning and playing well.”

Dow doesn’t know that much about Queen’s Park, with tomorrow’s game the first time he has faced the Spiders since joining Peterhead on a temporary deal in September.

Queen’s are sixth in League Two with 15 points, but did get a draw at Balmoor on the opening day of the season.

Dow said: “I don’t know a huge amount about them because I haven’t played them this year.

“But speaking to people, I’m told they’re a decent team and they bring through quite a lot of young players and have a good reputation. It will be a hard game, but with the run we’re on, we’re looking forward to it.”
