Five missing for Queen`s
In-form Queen's Park will try and make it five wins in a row when leaders Arbroath visit Hampden.
But their resources are still stretched as they will be without five players.
Jamie Brough, Tony Quinn, Michael O'Hara, Craig Smith and Graeme Eaglesham all remain out injured with head coach Gardner Speirs naming the same squad which defeated East Stirling 2-0 last weekend.
The last time the sides met at the National Stadium, Queen's Park came out on top with a 5-2 win and Speirs would easily settle for the same result again.
He said: "Another 5-2 win would be fantastic however I would happily settle for a 1-0 triumph over a side that are top of the league on merit and who will be very dangerous opponents."
Arbroath welcome back young player of the month Josh Falkingham to their ranks following suspension for the trip.
Midfield partner Ross Chisholm remains out through suspension, defender Alan Rattray is sidelined through injury and manager Paul Sheerin has ended his interest in winger Adam Strachan, who featured as a trialist last weekend.
The Red Lichties are out to make up for a disappointing performance in their last outing to Glasgow which ended in a 5-2 defeat.
Sheerin said: "It is always nice to visit Hampden, however Queen's Park gave us a bit of a going over the last time we were here.
"We lost Steven Doris to a red card when the score was 2-2 and then it was downhill all the way."
Spiders salvage draw
Martin McBride scored from the spot as Queens Park held league leaders Arbroath to a 1-1 draw at Hampden Park.
The away side took the lead just three minutes in as Stuart Malcolm rose above the Spiders' defence to head home from six yards out.
Queens Park threatened to hit back moments later with efforts from Ian Watt and Daryll Meggatt sailing wide of the Arbroath goal.
But their persistence paid off as the first half came to a close, with goalscorer Stuart Malcolm fouling David Murray in the area for McBride to slot home an equaliser.
Gardner Speirs's side continued to press and Jamie Longworth came closest to scoring a winner, hitting the bar with a superb 20-yard volley with six minutes remaining.
The result keeps Arbroath top of the Scottish Third Division table, two points clear of Albion Rovers.
