Preview PeterheadSaturday, 23rd Jan 2016
Peterhead's only home defeat this league season was back in September when Brechin City left with a 3-2 win
After a break for the Scottish Cup and the postponement of the Albion Rovers game last weekend, Dunfermline will play their second league match of 2016 at Peterhead this Saturday.
The last visit to Peterhead is the only away match to have been fruitless for the Pars in terms of points. Allan Johnston's team will be be wary of their trip north on Saturday since that last match at the Balmoor Stadium in August was their first defeat of the four fixtures. Prior to the 2-1 defeat there had been a League Cup win and two league draws.
Record v Peterhead
Peterhead are unbeaten in the league since 31st October and Dunfermline are unbeaten in the league since 12th September. That's probably why the odds for a draw are low at less than 3-1.

Pars fans may think their side has scored lots of goals this season but Peterhead's tally of 48 from 21 games is just four behind the Pars though the Fifers have played one game less. Peterhead's downfall has been conceding 25 in those 21 matches while the Pars have conceded just 14. That record might be endangered given the Blue Toon have scored 16 goals in their last 4 matches.
