After two Scottish Cup ties against Inverness Caley Thistle, and the postponement of last week’s trip to Elgin, we return to Ladbrokes League 2 action this weekend.
Queen’s Park are our visitors as we aim to get back on track following the post-Christmas defeats to East Fife and East Stirlingshire, which have left us sixth in the table, four points outside the play-offs.
Team news: Defenders Ross McMillan and Kevin McKinlay remain out and midfielder Craig Comrie is a doubt with a hip injury. New signing Scot Buist – who was ineligible for the Scottish Cup replay with Inverness CT – could be added to the squad.
Opponents: Queen’s Park are second in Ladbrokes League 2, three points behind leaders Elgin City, after drawing 1-1 with Montrose at Hampden last weekend – a match which by all accounts they dominated. Gus MacPherson’s side have the best away record in the division, with six wins on their travels.
Past meetings: Queen’s Park have already beaten us twice this season. John Carter’s opener was quickly cancelled out by Steven Doris at Forthbank in September but Anthony Ralston scored early in the second half as the visitors won 2-1. John Carter scored the only goal at Hampden in November to end our seven-match unbeaten run.
