Peterhead 25 March 2017 003Scorers: Peterhead - McAllister (7) and Redman (90+2); Stranraer - Malcolm (18) and Robertson (24)
 
JAMIE Redman's injury time header proved a sickener for Stranraer who left Balmoor with just a point.

The Blues looked on course for a valuable three points after coming from behind in an exciting first half.

Stevie Farrell made two changes from the side that had lost out to Livingston one week earlier.

In came Morgyn Neill and David Barron with Michael Donald fit to return to the bench, as Mark McGuigan dropped out of the team and Craig Pettigrew missed out through injury.

Things got off to the worst possible start for Stranraer as Rory McAllister, who scored twice at Stair Park earlier this season, broke the deadlock.

There was plenty of swerve on his free-kick but Cameron Belford may feel he could have done better.

However, the visitors responded in impressive fashion.

Craig Malcolm was unlucky to have a lob ruled out for a push before the striker found a leveller.
 
Again, a long ball over the top caught out the Peterhead defence and Malcolm delicately flicked the ball past Graham Smith.
 
The game was turned on its head minutes later when Scott Robertson got on the end of fine a flowing move.

Scott Agnew played the ball down the line to David Wilson, who fed it into Malcolm.

With the visiting fans calling for the striker to pull the trigger, he rolled it to Robertson who calmly slotted home his first of the season.

Stranraer could have been out of sight before the break but Steven Bell failed to get enough on Agnew's corner.

Peterhead had been poor in the opening 45 minutes but saw plenty more of the ball in the second half.

Bell was in the right place to deny Grant Anderson just before the hour mark as the hosts attempted to put the pressure on.

However, too often they took the wrong option and Belford was rarely troubled as it looked like the Blues would hold on for a valuable three points.

That was until the home side were awarded a debatable corner, with Jamie Redman getting ahead of his marker to nod home deep into stoppage time.
