Peterhead talisman Rory McAllister has warned Morton he is back to form and aiming to dump them out of the Scottish Cup.
Although he didn’t score in Saturday’s 1-1 third-round draw at Cappielow the Blue Toon striker felt it was his best performance for a number of weeks.
Ahead of tonight’s replay at Balmoor McAllister has warned the Championship side he is ready to hit the net again after four games without a goal.
The 31-year-old said: “I was pleased with how I played on Saturday even though I didn’t score.
“I feel like I’ve been blowing hot and cold for the last few weeks but I felt like I was back on my game on Saturday.
“We had a few chances and for me it was good to be back playing well and helping the team.
“I’m definitely looking to get back on the goal trail just now and it would be good to do that tonight.
“I’ve been working hard and scrapping and the chances will come so hopefully I can take them tonight.”
McAllister believes Peterhead were the better side in Greenock on Saturday and unlucky not to go through.
He took confidence from the display and reckons a similar performance tonight will see the League Two team upset full-time Morton who are two divisions higher.
He added: “On Saturday I felt we were the better team to be honest and could have won it.
“But even still the result is a good reflection on us and the way we played.
“I think we’ve got a good chance in the replay up at Balmoor.
“We can take a lot of confidence from the first game ahead of the replay because I think we were by far the better team.
“With a little bit of extra quality we go and win that game.
“But if we play as well as Saturday at Balmoor tonight then I think we’ll go on and win the game and get through to the next round.”
On offer in round four for the winner this evening is a trip to face East Fife at New Bayview on the weekend of January 19.
McAllister said: “It is a good draw and we would fancy that.
“But I say that with respect to East Fife because I haven’t seen too much of them but they have been doing well in their league (third in League One).
“But you want a game you can win and that is a game we could win so if we got through we would fancy our chances.”
Someone that could be crucial to the Blue Toon’s chances is midfielder Ryan Dow.
The Ross County loanee produced a man-of-the-Match display on Saturday and McAllister was full of praise for Dow.
He said: “Ryan was brilliant. He did really well dribbling, taking on their midfield and defence and getting us up the park.
“He created chances and I thought he could have scored when he passed when he should have shot.
“But he is coming on to a game now and he is looking good for us this season.
“He’s shown his quality and he probably shouldn’t be at this level. But if Ross County don’t want him then it’s good for us to have him and he’s shown what he can add to us.”
