East Fife V Peterhead at Bayview Stadium - Match Preview

Fife waiting on duo

East Fife manager Billy Brown will name his side to face Peterhead at New Bayview after fitness tests on Stevie Campbell and Collin Samuel who both sat out training on Monday due to slight knocks.

Brown is confident that the duo will feature and he also has fit-again Darren McCormack available.

The Methil manager knows that his men are facing an in-form side.

"Peterhead have won 10 games in a row and that is a terrific achievement in any league," said Brown.

"They will be tough opponents but if we play like we can we can take an advantage into Saturday's game.

"The one thing we have to do is to have an error-free defensive display as they have good front men who could punish us."

Peterhead are battling an injury crisis.

Callum Macdonald and Davie Ross, who have had knee surgery, are sidelined along with Martin Bavidge, who has a hamstring problem.

Manager Jim McInally has praised a host of players who are playing despite not being fully fit.

McInally said: "The players ended the season with eight successive wins and that carried on with wins home and away over Queen's Park in the play-off semi-final.

"However it has come at a price as a number of them are really patched and strapped up now."

Stephen Noble, David Cox, Andy Rodgers and Rory McAllister are the worst affected.

McInally added: "These guys are giving us everything and more and hopefully they can keep it going for two more games.

"East Fife will be boosted by their success over Berwick so we will have to battle hard."
