Peterhead’s Jack Leitch has declared himself fit for League Two’s helicopter Saturday.
The title race is going down to the wire. Montrose are favourites and will be champions if they avoid defeat against Elgin at Links Park.
However, if the Gable Endies lose and the Blue Toon beat Edinburgh City at Balmoor, Peterhead will be crowned champions.
The Evening Express understands the SPFL are arranging a helicopter to transport the trophy from Links Park to Balmoor if Montrose slip up.
Leitch is keen to play a part on Saturday having recovered from a knee problem.
In Peterhead’s 1-0 win against Cowdenbeath on April 14, the midfielder was subbed after an hour because of his knee. In Saturday’s 1-0 win at Elgin, Leitch was brought on early in the second half and the 22-year-old says he’s ready to play his part this weekend as Jim McInally’s side go for the title.
Leitch said: “I think I came back and played slightly too early against Cowdenbeath.
“It was sore after that but it’s fine now for me to play. I’m looking forward to Saturday and seeing what happens. “It’s been a great title race because we’re looking at potentially finishing second with 76 points.
“We’ve shown a lot of character and confidence throughout the full season and that’s shown by having 73 points.”
While still hopeful they will win the title on Saturday, Leitch believes even if they don’t they will still have a good chance of being promoted to League One through the play-offs – they are in a rich vein of form having won their last five games.
He added: “We just need to push them – all we can do is win our game and see what happens.
“We have been on a great run, even when we were beaten by Montrose (3-2 on March 17) I thought we played well.
“It was a couple of mistakes that undid us that day. “We’ve won five in a row now so even if it doesn’t happen for us we take a great run of form into the play-offs and we can take positives from that.”
