PERSISTENCE paid off for Peebles on Saturday when a dogged display at Recreation Park saw John O’Hara’s men take a much-needed win in the East of Scotland First Division.
Playing with the wind behind them in the first half, the visitors scored after 25 minutes through Frankie Arthur and were 2-0 up at the break thanks to another by Chris Flockhart.
After the break it looked as though the hosts would take similar advantage of the gusty conditions when they pegged a goal back in the 65th, but Peebles dug deep and found exactly what they were looking for.
Scott Sutherland and Donovan Ndiweni added a goal apiece to cement the victory, which saw them leapfrog Duns and take seventh place on the league table.
O’Hara told The Southern: “I’m delighted with what was a really good three points away from home which showed huge effort, desire and workrate in abundance.”
