Crawford may miss Queen's reunion

Stirling goalkeeper David Crawford is a doubt to face his former club Queen's Park due an ankle injury.

Callum Reidford looks set to deputise while another former Hampden player, striker David Weatherston, rejoins manager Greig McDonald's squad after a hamstring injury.

McDonald said: "We were disappointed with a draw at the home of the league leaders East Stirling last week as we had lots of chances in the first half.

"They came back into things but the players left Ochilview disappointed at a draw and that bodes well for the season.

"While it was a disappointing result there were plenty of positives that we can build on."

Queen's have doubts over skipper Tony Quinn, who has missed training all week with illness, and Liam Gormley who has a hamstring problem.

Joao Victoria is likely to start if Quinn does not make it.

The amateur side are already without Grant Mosson (groin) and James Baty (shoulder).

Head coach Gardner Speirs said: "We are on a solid run of results just now but not a spectacular run. Our performance levels have been getting better in every game and we want that to continue.

"Stirling are looking to be one of the contenders in the title race so it will be difficult."
