Peterhead goalie Greg Fleming insists their next three games are not season defining.

But he does admit the Blue Toon have a great chance to put themselves in pole position to win the League Two title.

Tomorrow Jim McInally’s league leaders take on third-placed Stirling Albion at Forthbank.

On Tuesday, fourth-placed Stenhousemuir visit Balmoor before a clash with Montrose, who are second only on goal differ-ence, next Saturday.

After chasing their rivals for long periods Peterhead hit top spot 10 days ago with a win over Clyde and Fleming, 31, knows they now have the chance to move clear of their rivals.

The keeper said: “It is a big week but I don’t think it’s season defining, or make or break because you never know what can happen.

“If we come out of the week with at least seven points it’s going to be difficult for everyone else.

“But after that, there will still be six games to go, so I don’t think you could say it was over.

“But it would give us a massive boost to play the three teams closest to us and take those sort of points off them.

“They are all going to be tough games.

“It’s the right time to be top, going into the last quarter of the season. It is a good time to hit form just now and a couple of wee ks ago everything was looking a bit doom and gloom.

“The manager has kept everyone positive and has kept telling us we will pick up results.

“This is the most important time to pick up your form and go for it.”

Aidan McIlduff and Alan Smith return from injury while Marc Lawrence is back after a loan spell at Ellon United.

Talisman Rory McAllister isn’t fit enough to start after ankle ligament damage but will be involved tomorrow, Jason Brown and Jack Leitch are suspended.
