Murray returns for Queen's Park
Queen's Park winger David Murray is available to face East Stirling after a hamstring injury, but Paul Stewart drops out of the squad that beat Clyde 3-0 in the Spiders' last outing through work commitments.
Tony Quinn, Steven Baillie, Michael O'Hara and Giuseppe Capuano all remain out through injury, with Hampden head coach Gardner Speirs looking to end 2011 on a high.
Speirs said: "We want to round the year off with a win although it will not be easy.
"East Stirling's results have improved recently, apart from a blip against Stranraer, so we have to be at our best to get the three points.
"It is a busy and important time of the season now and we want to be going into it with a win behind us."
East Stirling have secured the services of St Mirren striker Bradley Coyne on loan for a further month and he is included in head coach John Coughlin's squad.
Ryan Frances remains suspended and Jordyn Sheerin is still sidelined with an ankle knock, with Coughlin again looking to on-loan Cowdenbeath defender Craig Winter to shore up his rearguard.
Coughlin said: "Craig's leadership has been great and the players around him have responded well and we will need him to keep things tight against a Queen's Park side that attack with great pace.
"We also have to stop them passing the ball for fun if we want to do anything in this game but we are going there with confidence."
Spiders go fourth and conquer
Goals from Ian Watt and Craig Smith lifted Queen's Park up to fourth after a 2-0 win over East Stirling.
Watt struck his fourth goal of the season seven minutes before half-time and Smith wrapped up the points midway through the second half.
The hosts had almost gone ahead in the opening seconds when Smith's shot was blocked and, from the ensuing corner, Daryll Meggatt headed wide.
East Stirling threatened in the 20th minute but Neil Parry tipped Bradley Coyne's 20-yard drive round the post.
And Queen's took the lead when Smith's shot was saved by Calum Antell and Watt was on hand to tuck in the rebound.
After the break David Murray and Smith put headers wide but the latter finally got on the scoresheet in the 67th minute with a neat finish from David Anderson's pass.
