A delighted Jim McInally felt Peterhead’s 3-1 win over Airdrie was exactly what their recent displays deserved.
The Blue Toon lifted themselves off the bottom of League One by coming from behind.
McInally hopes the win against the full-time outfit is the first of a string of good results.
He said: “I’m just delighted with the result.
“We felt that our performances have been better than our results suggested.
“I thought it was what we deserved, we defended better, we passed it better and we attacked better.”
McInally admits he thought it might have been “one of these days” when the hosts went in front.
Iain Russell scored the opener after 55 minutes via a deflection off Fiacre Kelleher.
But 11 minutes later, Peterhead turned the game around with two goals in 60 seconds.
Kelleher nodded Kevin Dzierzawski’s corner past Rohan Ferguson to equalise.
And a minute later, Simon Ferry’s wonderful ball played in the typically clinical Rory McAllister.
In injury time, it was the forward who played provider as he freed substitute Leighton McIntosh to score.
McInally was pleased with the effort of his entire team.
He praised Nicky Riley and McAllister but saved the biggest credit for on-loan defender Kelleher.
He said: “Fiacre was outstanding, I thought he was the man of the match.
“He defended well, he used the ball brilliantly at times and showed real maturity.”
