After last Saturday's narrow defeat at Stenhousemuir we are back on home soil on Saturday afternoon when we meet Peterhead with a 3 p.m. kick off.
The Blue Toon currently sit in fourth place with seven points from their five games so far - five behind early pace setters Stirling Albion and three ahead of us.
After just missing out in qualifying for the knock out stages of the Betfred Cup, being the only runner up to finish with nine points but not go through, Peterhead opened their Ladbrokes League Two campaign with a 2-1 win at Annan and a 3-0 win over Elgin.
After those two wins however two successive defeats followed with Stenhousemuir winning 3-1 at Ochilview and Stirling winning 4-2 at Balmoor, before last week's 1-1 home draw with Montrose when the Gable Endies equalised in stoppage time.
In the Irn Bru Cup Peterhead have reached the last 16 and will be away to Inverness in a fortnight after wins over East Fife and Annan both by the same score 2-0.
First Meeting - 25/11/00 won 2-0 Second half goals from John Paul Burns and Anton Smith saw us win our first home league game against Peterhead who had keeper Ivor Pirie sent off after just two minutes.
Biggest Win -  5-0 10/10/09 Both Paul McQuade and Gareth Wardlaw hit braces in a Second Division game along with Jon Robertson. We also beat Peterhead in two Scottish Cup replays at Central Park by a five goal margin 5-0 on 13/1/78 and 11/1/92 by 6-1.
Biggest Loss - 0-4 4/12/94 Scott Michie hit a hat trick along with Bobby Linn & 23/2/08 Kenny Adamson put through his own net and Bryan Gilfillan was sent off just after the break as goals from Bobby Mann, Iain Good and Martin Bavidge gave the Blue Toon a convincing win in a season which we were eventually relegated from the Second Division.
