Jim McInally would love to take Peterhead to the top of League Two tonight – but insists the title race will be far from finished whatever the outcome.
The Blue Toon clash with table toppers Edinburgh City at Ainslie Park with a win for the Buchan outfit taking them to the league’s summit.
McInally believes taking points off their nearest rivals is important as they aim for promotion.
He said: “Head to heads are significant but you could look at a lot of things.
“If you want to win anything you have to win big games and it would be good to go down there and make amends for the home defeat.
“Even though it was 1-0 I didn’t think we played that well that day.
“I know some of their players have said the pressure is on us – but if we lose and go five points behind is the league finished?
“It’s far from finished.
“We are only 14 games into the season and there is a long way to go, regardless of what happens tonight, but I would love to get to the top of the league.”
McInally will make a late call on whether to play left-back Paddy Boyle who hurt his ankle in Saturday’s 5-0 win at Berwick.
