Peterhead 1-0 Queen's Park

A late penalty strike from Rory McAllister sealed the points for Peterhead in a tense Third Division clash with Queen's Park.

The win sends them to second place in the Scottish Third Division, but they were made to wait until late on by a spirited performance from Queen's Park.

Anthony Quinn went close for the visitors in the 40th minute, with a right-footed volley from the centre of the area, that Peterhead goalkeeper Paul Jarvie did well to parry.

A sustained period of pressure from the home side almost led to a breakthrough in the 46th minute, but the Spiders rearguard did well to snuff out the danger from a succession of corners and a free-kick crossed into the box.

It looked like ending in a stalemate until James Brough brought McAllister down in the box on the 81st minute.

McAllister stepped up to put the spot-kick away to clinch the points.
