Meggat back for Queens
In-form Queens Park are boosted by the return of full-back Darryl Meggat after suspension for the clash with Annan.
However, midfielder Paul Harkins is doubtful with a groin strain and could join the injured group of Tony Quinn, Michael O'Hara, Jamie Brough, Steven Baillie and Ian Watt on the sidelines.
Queens could move into a play-off spot for the first time this season by defeating visitors Annan to pick up their seventh win in eight games.
Hampden head coach Gardner Speirs continues to play things cool at the National Stadium, saying: "We are on a good run but we will not be getting carried away.
"Our approach of looking no further than the next game has done us fine recently, so we will continue in that manner."
Annan will be without assistant-player manager Andy Aitken for the trip after he was sent off against Albion at the weekend.
Full-back John MacBeth returns after a ban, with Galabank boss Harry Cairney hoping experienced midfielder Neil MacFarlane will be available after injury to face the team with which he began his senior career.
Cairney will tell his players to be prepared to face a team in form, saying: "Queens Park have put together a great string of results and transformed their season.
"Hampden is a big pitch and the players will need to ensure that Queens Park do not use it to their advantage by using their wide men to get in behind us."
Queens Park cruise to victory
Queens Park moved into the Scottish Third Division play-off places with a 3-0 home win over rivals Annan.
Michael Daly opened the scoring in the 27th minute with a sensational 30-yard strike.
Aaron Muirhead almost equalised for Athletic five minutes later, but his close-range header was straight at home goalkeeper Adam Strain.
Jamie Longworth notched the all-important second in the 59th minute courtesy of a cool finish before Craig Smith grabbed another five minutes from time, converting from inside the penalty area after Longworth's initial six-yard effort was parried by Craig Summersgill.
Queens Park are now fourth in the Third Division, one point ahead of Annan although they have played two more games.
