Match Preview









Keenan boost for Queens

Recently-appointed Queen's Park head coach Gus McPherson has Michael Keenan available for his first home game in charge against East Stirling.


Keenan is back after a ban and returns to the reckoning along with Jamie Brough after work commitments ruled him out last time.


Ahead of the game, McPherson said: "It is my first home game in charge at the end of my first week of working with players and I am really looking forward to it.


"The Shire are a solid side and picking up a win will be difficult but I was pleased with what I saw at Peterhead last Saturday and do not envisage many changes."


East Stirling have Michael Bolochoweckyj available after illness but Ross O'Donoghue drops out with a hip injury.


Kevin Turner (ankle) remains unavailable but Nathan Shepherd is included after playing in a reserve game in midweek following 10 months out with a knee problem.


Shire head coach John Coughlin has asked his men to start taking their chances in front of goal.


He said: "We need to start scoring as not converting good play into goals is hurting us. We failed to convert chances last week at Clyde and went behind to a poor own goal. We could not recover the situation due to the chances we missed."
