Peterhead manager Jim McInally is delighted to see former Blue Toon striker Russell McLean flourish at Montrose however he hopes that the 22-year-old is misfiring when the Gable Endies visit Balmoor tonight.
McLean has scored six times in six games with McInally saying: “Russell is in great form and I am pleased for him. I am not surprised he is doing well as I liked him as a player, however he grew frustrated here as he could not start ahead of Rory McAllister and Derek Lyle.”
“He moved to Montrose and is now fulfilling his potential but I hope that he has an off night against us.”
The Blue Toon go into the game on the back of a 1-0 win at Partick Thistle however their success came at a price with potentially six players set to miss out with McInally saying: “We will reshuffle the pack and just get on with it. We have had a few games this season where we have been short on numbers and no-one has let us down.”
“It was a terrific win on Saturday and it followed up a fine performance and win over East Fife. Winning three games in this league can really make a huge positive difference to your season and that is what we will look to do.”

Andrew McCarthy’s knee injury is still troubling the midfielder and Ryan Conroy is set to miss out for the first time this season due to an ankle problem with Josh Mulligan and Ben Armour both still unavailable.
