Tragedy for Annan as Macbeth misses out
Annan entertain fellow promotion-chasers Queen's Park without full-back John Macbeth, who has a groin problem, as they look to keep pace with Alloa and Stranraer at the Spiders' expense.
Manager Harry Cairney will finalise his side after Saturday morning fitness tests for Peter Watson, Ian Harty, Sean O'Connor and Graeme Bell.
Despite losing to leaders Alloa last weekend, Cairney is being upbeat, saying: "We actually played really well at Recreation Park and the only thing that was missing was a bit of penetration. If we get that right against Queen's Park then we can keep our decent record over them going.
"They will be coming here full of confidence after scoring six times past Elgin last week and we have to blunt their attacking threat to win."
Queen's Park are looking for the win that will move them into third spot in the Scottish Third Division, but head coach Gardner Speirs will need to make changes to the side that defeated Elgin City 6-0 last weekend.
Jamie Brough misses out through work commitments and David Murray is out with a hamstring injury, with Paul Gallacher and Sean Burns now expected to start.
Paul Stewart is also absent because of work, and only a lack of games keeps out the fit-again Tony Quinn, Giuseppe Capuano, Steven Baillie and Michael O'Hara.
Speirs said: "We are entering a really crucial phase of the season and we have to keep up the good form we have shown since the start of 2012. Annan is a difficult venue but we want a win."
McBride bags spot-kick brace in win
Martin McBride scored two penalties to help Queens Park to a 3-2 victory against Annan.
The home side took the lead after two minutes, David Winters drilling into the top corner after good work by Sean O'Connor.
Queens Park equalised 17 minutes later when Ben McKenna brought down Sean Burns. McBride placed his penalty into the bottom-right corner.
The away side struck again from the spot six minutes after half-time, this time Aaron Muirhead fouled Ian Watt and McBride blasted home his kick.
McBride turned provider two minutes from time, crossing for Craig Smith to slot into the bottom-left corner.
Annan got a goal back in injury-time as O'Connor latched on to Ian Harty's cushioned pass to drill home, but they could not force an equaliser.
