Match Preview

Lawless still absent for Albion Albion are again without Steven Lawless for their Second Division play-off semi-final second-leg tie at home to Queen`s Park. The on-loan Motherwell striker missed the 1-1 draw in the first leg with a thigh strain and has not recovered. Manager Paul Martin said: "There were a few bumps and bruises after the first leg but we had the boys in on Thursday and checked them out and everyone is raring to go." Martin is adamant the game should be enjoyed by everyone associated with the Coatbridge club and added: "Reaching the play-offs is the culmination of three years hard work by everyone at this club. "I will tell the players not to worry but to go out and enjoy it. We want to win through and we are capable of winning." Queen's Park head coach Gardner Speirs will travel with an unchanged squad. It means Steven Baillie, Jamie Brough, Paul Harkins, Michael O'Hara and David Murray, who missed the first leg, will again be absent. After a disappointing experience in the semi-finals last season, Speirs is pleased to be heading to Coatbridge still in with a chance of progressing. He said: "Last season against Arbroath was very different as we were four down after the opening game and six down after 10 minutes of the second game. "This time around everyone is really excited about the opportunity to progress and hopefully that will spark something. It may take a piece of magic from one of our creative players to push us through."

Match Report

Gemmell at the double for Albion John Gemmell bagged a brace as a 2-0 win earned Albion a place in the Second Division play-off final at the expense of Queens Park. Albion, who had finished second in the Third Division, almost led in the opening seconds but Ciaran Donnelly`s close-range effort from Steve Canning`s free-kick whistled past the post. Queens Park`s response came from Michael Daly but his right-foot shot from 18 yards was well wide, and then Gemmell should have done better with a header from Michael McGowan's cross. Gemmell spurned another headed chance at the start of the second half but made amends in the 67th minute when Robert Love played him in and the forward coolly converted. Love came agonisingly close to sealing Albion`s place in the final as his six-yard shot cannoned back off the crossbar after 73 minutes. And it was left to Gemmell to put the icing on the cake with a well-taken second into the bottom corner from the edge of the box to seal a 3-1 aggregate victory.
