Peterhead boss Jim McInally hailed his side as they went top of League Two.
The Blue Toon beat Albion Rovers 2-1 thanks to a first half double from Derek Lyle. Barry Eley netted for the Coatbridge side.
With Edinburgh City losing 1-0 at home to Clyde, it means the Buchan outfit leapfrog City and go a point clear at the League Two summit.
On being top of the table, McInally said: “It’s nice to go top, we knew something would give for either Edinburgh or Clyde so it was just about winning for us.
“We would have liked to have won with a better scoreline because of our first half.
“It wasn’t to be, but we are up there now to be shot at – but that’s where we want to be.”
Reflecting on his side’s performance against Rovers, McInally added: “In the first half some of our play was fantastic. The wind dominated what was going to happen.
“We had the wind in the first half and if it had been six or seven in the first half it would have been a fair reflection on the half.
“But we couldn’t get the third goal and I was wondering if two was going to be enough for us because the wind was horrific.
“It was against us in the second half. We conceded from a corner and we were hanging on a bit.
“They were coming at us and it was tough, but we need to remember how good some of the play in the first half was without being over critical in the second half.
“We still missed chances in the second half, we needed the third goal to make it easier.
“We had something like 16 shots at goal and 14 of them were in the first half.
“Their goalie made some really good saves, but then in the second half Greg Fleming made a couple of good saves for us.
“We defended well from open play, but we conceded from a corner and gave a couple of chances away from free-kicks.
“We can’t be too critical because we have won and we had a bad half.”
McInally also praised scorer Derek Lyle, who has netted four goals in two games.
McInally said: “Derek’s finishing is fantastic and you can see that now he has confidence and it’s good to see him getting the rewards.
“Since he’s joined he’s been the ideal professional. He hasn’t always played, but he’s sat on the bench, taken his medicine and shown a great attitude to get in the team.”
