Peterhead striker Rory McAllister today said his team can take great pride from their unbeaten run, as an injury-time penalty extended it once again.
The Blue Toon’s run looked to be coming to an end as they trailed 1-0 away to Albion Rovers after 90 minutes after Ally Love’s first-half strike.
However, McAllister would bury a spot-kick in the 92nd minute, after Scott McBride’s handball, for his 31st goal of the season.
The strike also means the Blue Toon are now unbeaten in 16 League One games, stretching back to October.
“It was good to get the draw,” McAllister said.
“It didn’t look like we were going to get back into the game as they did well in keeping us out, to be honest, and we struggled to create a lot of chances.
“But it is just the way it is going now, we are getting the goals when we need them in important times.
“We can take a lot of pride from the run – a couple more games and that is half a season, which is pretty impressive.”
Meanwhile, Peterhead boss Jim McInally has praised the impact of teenage midfielders Marc Lawrence, 17, and Scott Ferries, 19.
Lawrence, who spent the first half of the season on loan at Highland League outfit Fraserburgh, and Ferries, who has recently returned from a successful one-month loan spell at East Stirling, came on with just over half an hour to go at Cliftonhill and made a big impact.
“Marc really showed our players how to do it,” McInally said.
“He is just 17 but he came on and did a great job in the middle of the park.
“He showed a real enthusiasm, which helped us stay in the game and so did Scott Ferries, who is now back with us after his loan at East Stirling.”
