East Fife manager Darren Young looks back on win that got away

East Fife are out to get the better of hosts Peterhead and make up for dropping two points to the Blue Toon earlier in the season.

The Balmoor side left the Locality Hub Bayview after a 1-1 draw back in August with Methil manager Darren Young still bewildered that his side never won.

He said: “That was a strange game as somehow it ended up in a draw.

“We managed to get an equaliser but we could not get a winner despite having 18 attempts on goal.

“Jim McInally, who is one of the most honest managers around, said afterwards that he was delighted to come away with a point as we had created so many chances.”

Young, however, does not expect to be on top as much in this one.

He added: “That was one of their first games in this league after promotion and they have improved since then so I am not expecting to dominate as much.

“I watched the footage from their game with Airdrie last weekend and they were unlucky to lose 2-1.

“They will feel aggrieved at the penalty that was given against them and ultimately cost them the points.

“In their last home game Peterhead won 3-0 against Stranraer and that is a warning.”

Whilst the Blue Toon were losing to the Diamonds the Fifers were moving back up to third courtesy of a 2-0 win at Stranraer.

Young said: “This game will be different from that one.

“That win was achieved on a really heavy Stair Park pitch and we could not pass the ball around.

“Balmoor is always a good surface so we will look to play much more of our normal game.”

“Stranraer had a bit more of the ball than us without creating too many chances, but it was not a smash and grab type of win.

“We worked away and got our first goal through a great shot from Ross Davidson and then Scott Agnew wrapped things up.”

“I would settle for a 2-0 win over Peterhead right now.”

Pat Slattery misses out through suspension, with Kyle Bell and Kevin Smith absent through injury.
