Peterhead boss Jim McInally has warned Brechin to expect a “dangerous” visit from the Blue Toon.
After scoring six goals in their last three games, the side are showing signs of improvement.
The club were bottom after a rotten start to the league campaign before picking up four points in their last two matches.
But while Peterhead will want to keep moving up the table, Brechin will be keen to push on themselves.
They have started the season well and sit in third place and have the best defensive record in the division.
Darren Dods’ team have picked up where they left off at the end of last season when they won eight of their last 10 to avoid relegation.
McInally admits his team are still a “work in progress”particularly in a defensive sense.
But he expects the Blue Toon to make it tough for Brechin at Glebe Park.
He said: “We have been scoring goals and in the last four we’ve scored.
“Our top scorer Rory McAllister hasn’t been a part of them, so that’s a positive that we aren’t just relying on him to score goals.
“We’ll go there and we will be a dangerous side for them.
“The expectation is a wee bit on them this time to beat us and they’ll be wary of playing us, that’s for sure.”
Brechin won 5-1 the last time the sides faced each other.
Last season’s four league meetings heralded 18 goals as both teams have created chances aplenty.
McInally would like another adventurous game even if the hosts go in as favourites.
He said: “We go there for the first time in a while as underdogs and even last season when we played them near the end, they were a good team.
“I enjoy going there actually, the games are usually always entertaining and I’m expecting that again this time as well.”
McInally openly acknowledged his team are yet to hit their best form in the league yet.
The team still sit ninth in the table and he is still looking for his young defence to click and improve their consistency.
And he feels it is a collective responsibility to make sure there are fewer errors.
He said: “There are still mistakes being made but we’re working on stopping that.
“Once we conceded the first goal last weekend, the guys stopped doing the things they had been doing well before that.
“We just need to keep looking at that and learn from them.”
McInally also confirmed Salim Nassor is training with the Aberdeen U20s to get him to used to Scottish football.
He called it an “ideal scenario” for the youngster to train on a more frequent basis.
