Jim McInally is confident his Peterhead players can start to match their positive performances with good results.
The Blue Toon boss feels his side have been unlucky in recent defeats, especially against Livingston.
Tomorrow, they travel to face Airdrieonians after a two-week break from internationalfixtures.
McInally was pleased to have the gap in the schedule and praised the team’s efforts in training.
And he hopes Peterhead catch a different kind of break to secure the points to move up the table.
He said: “The last two games we’ve played in, we’ve played really well but it’s football and you just have to get on with it.
“We need to keep playing well and the first 20 minutes against Livingston was the best we’ve played in my five years with the club.
“You’ve just got to keep encouraging the boys to keep playing like that and we just need to catch a break.”
McInally admits Airdrieonians’ status as a full-time club could help them coming off a two-week run with no fixtures from a fitness perspective.
But the Blue Toon have a fantastic recent record against the sixth-placed side.
Peterhead won three of the four meetings between the two sides last year.
At present his team sit bottom of League One but McInally was adamant his players are more than capable of getting a result.
And he pointed to their last game at the Excelsior Stadium as a testament to what his side can do.
He said: “We’ve got a good record at their ground.
“Last time we were down there, we were 3-1 down with seven minutes to go and we ended up winning the game 4-3.
“It’s a good big pitch and we’ll go and enjoy it.
“Even the cameras being there from BBC Alba, the players don’t need any motivation because they know there will be people watching them.”
