Airdrieonians v Peterhead preview

15th August 2014

"Goals will come". That's the vow from midfielder Liam Watt as he and his Airdrie team-mates gear up to face League One new boys Peterhead. 

The 20-year-old was a standout in a more attacking midfield role at Ochilview last Saturday, but was left frustrated by Stenhousemuir's late win. 

"I feel we were hard done by, as we played a lot better than the previous week. We pressed better, passed better and made a lot more chances. 

"Goals will come, we just need to keep making the chances!" 

Newly-promoted Peterhead make their first trip South to New Broomfield since 2011's Division 2 play-off, but Watt knows he can expect another tough battle. 

"No game will be easy, but with everyone giving 100% I feel we can win. If we start the way we finished last week, there's no reason why we can't." 

The Blue Toon got off the mark with a 1-1 draw at home to fellow new boys Stirling Albion last week, dangerman Rory McAllister earning the draw with an 85th minute equaliser. 

The former Brechin striker will have to be closely watched by the Diamonds' defence, in a week which saw one of their own forwards hitting the headlines. 

Liam Coogans made the move to English Championship side Huddersfield Town, and his former team-mate Watt is pleased for him. 

"It's a great move for him and everyone in the team is delighted for him. He has a lot of talent, as we've seen with his goals. 

"He's still young and has plenty of time. He has a bright future, hopefully he sticks in and works hard and goes far". 

Sticking in and working hard were both factors in last week's much-improved performance - but with nothing to show for their efforts, Gary Bollan's men will be looking to add goals to their game this week.
