Annan boss Chapman has injury concerns

League Two leaders Annan have plenty of late concerns as they prepare to host Queen's Park on Saturday.

Steven Swinglehurst has been ill while Bryan Gilfillan, Steven Black and Stuart McColm will all face late fitness tests.

Boss Jim Chapman said: "I want to give the players as long as possible to prove their fitness as I want as strong a line-up as possible against Queen's Park.

"We did well in the first quarter of the season and defeating Queen's would be a terrific way to start the second run of games.

"We had a good win at Arbroath in our last game and a repeat of that would be great."

Spiders captain Tony Quinn continues to be absent with a hip injury and head coach Gus MacPherson is reluctant to add Gavin Mitchell who is fit again after three months out with an ankle problem.

MacPherson said: "We played Annan in the first match of the season and lost 1-0 as we could not score and they hit us with a well-executed counter attack.

We would like to make up for that however we cannot go all out attacking to get it as they would pick us off. We will need to play in a controlled fashion to get the three points."
