Berwick with problems before showdown

Berwick have their fair share of problems as they prepare to face Queen's Park in a vital game in the play-off race.

The Shielfield side are missing the long-term injured Dene Droudge (knee) and Marc Lancaster (back), and have added Dougie Brydon to their treatment room's occupants as he suffers a groin problem.

Manager Ian Little said: "Despite losing our last three games we still have a chance of making the play-offs.

"We beat Queen's Park 2-0 last month and a repeat of that would be fantastic and help keep our hopes going.

"A win would give us a platform for the rest of the season."

Queen's Park, who have not won in their last five games, head to Berwick with a growing injury list.

Paul Gallacher and Tony McParland (both ankle) have been joined in the treatment room by David Anderson, who suffered a similar problem after Wednesday's 2-0 defeat by Annan.

Jamie Brough misses out for a fourth game with an ankle knock, but head coach Gardner Speirs is looking to make up for a disappointing performance against the Borderers on his side's last visit.

Speirs said: "We lost that night to two goals from set-pieces and that was really disappointing as you want to make teams work hard to get goals.

"We were also very disappointing in a creative sense that night so I am looking for an improvement at both ends of the pitch in this game."
