Mick Dunlop has called on Peterhead to maintain their excellent away form when they face title rivals Clyde.
The Blue Toon make the trip to Broadwood tomorrow boasting four wins from four away from Balmoor so far this term in League Two.
The Buchan side are sitting second in the table, two points behind leaders Edinburgh City and four ahead of the Bully Wee.
Summer signing Dunlop is determined to keep their fine away run going to maintain the pressure on City, who play Stirling Albion tomorrow, and pull further clear of Clyde.
The centre-back said: “It would be great if we can continue it. That can’t be understated how good an achievement that is in a league as competitive as this.
“To pick up four away wins from four is an excellent achievement.
“If you’re trying to win the league like we are, and if you want to be able to do that you need a good away record.
“It’s been great for us so far and we just need to try to keep picking up the points away from home and win our home games. It is a chance to show our credentials because they are one of our nearest challengers.
“It will be a really difficult game and if you can win then it gives you a bit of breathing space. And we’re always trying to win because at the moment we’re a couple of points behind Edinburgh City so you want to keep winning to put pressure on them.”
Dunlop is expecting a tough game against Danny Lennon’s side tomorrow.
If selected the former Stenhousemuir player is likely to come up against ex-Aberdeen, Blackburn, Dundee United and Scotland striker David Goodwillie.
Dunlop knows all about the quality Goodwillie possesses and reckons if the Blue Toon can keep him quiet it will help them secure the points.
He added: “It will be a really difficult game, they’ve had a couple of defeats recently.
“But prior to that they were going really well and had a good start to the season.
“They’ve got a lot of good players and we’re away from home which makes it difficult.
“But we are on a good run ourselves of five wins on the bounce including the cup game.
“We’re playing with a lot of confidence just now but it will be a difficult game.
“Goodwillie’s an excellent player, a Scotland international who has played at a high level in Scotland and in England with Blackburn.
“I’m not being disrespectful but he’s their best player.
“If you are able to keep him quiet then it would give us a better chance of winning the match. He’s a great player and it’s always a tough game for us.”
Dunlop has started the last five games after shaking off an injury he was carrying when he joined Peterhead.
He said: “I feel with each game I’m getting fitter and sharper so I’m happy with how it’s going. I just need to keep working hard in training.”
