Match Preview

Stewart's second homecoming Queens Park look set to hand a second debut to midfielder Paul Stewart for the home clash with Stranraer. Stewart has returned to the club after taking a year out in order to join the police and will compete with Allan Urquhart for a starting place after David Anderson was ruled out. Winger Sean Burns is also in contention, but David Murray and Tony Quinn are both doubtful and Steven Baillie and Michael O'Hara remain sidelined through injury. The Spiders are looking to bounce back from last Saturday's 5-2 defeat at Annan. Head coach Gardner Speirs said: "It was a disappointing start and one we want to put right immediately, but I'm sure that Stranraer feel the same way following their defeat to Alloa." Stranraer welcome back defender Stuart Devine and striker Michael Moore from injury. Manager Keith Knox has a full-strength squad at his disposal as his side look to earn their first points of the season. Knox said: "We were good going forward against Alloa, especially in the first half, but poor defensively and that's why we lost 3-2. "Queens Park are always well organised and if we can keep things tight at the back I reckon we have the players that can get through their organisation and nick a win. "Last week was disappointing and winning this game will go a long way to making up for that."

Match Report

Spiders end poor run Queens Park arrested their disappointing start to the new season with a comfortable 2-0 win over Stranraer. Craig Malcolm showed early promise for the away side but his 20-yard shot curled well wide of Neil Parry's post. Jamie Longworth's struck on 34 minutes to give Queens Park the lead having received a neat ball from Paul McGinn. The Hoops doubled their lead advantage in the second half when Michael Daly tapped in from six yards. Parry did well to save a Michael Moore header from close range before the hour mark, and again had to be alert to punch away a threatening cross moments later. Daryll Meggatt tried his luck from distance for Queens Park but couldn't find the net as the home side ran down the clock to get back to winning ways.
