Stirling failed to make the most of some good opportunities as both teams drew a blank in the Hampden sunshine.
It was our first 0-0 draw in League 2 since October 2016 against Berwick Rangers at Forthbank when Martyn Corrigan was caretaker manager.
The most recent two meetings with the Spiders had both ended 1-1, with Mark Roberts’ team the better side on both occasions but the Binos were the more likely team here.
Kyle Banner again captained the side in the absence of skipper Ross McGeachie and Danny Jardine was still sidelined, with Dylan Mackin and Neil McLaughlin added to the injury list. Cammy Murray made his debut as a late substitute after stepping up from the reserves.
It was a game in which we got into a number of good positions in the final third while limiting Queen’s Park to very little in front of goal as they followed up last week’s 0-0 draw at Cowdenbeath with another stalemate.
We went into the match on the back of a 1-0 win over Berwick and it was a decent display from Kevin Rutkiewicz’s side, which probably merited all three points.
We didn’t work keeper Jordan Hart often enough but Peter MacDonald sent a header just wide in the first half after Hart missed a cross and Darren Smith blazed over after a great run from deep. Max Wright hooked a volley narrowly over the bar as we continued to chase an opener.
Both sides were trying to make things happen but Queen’s Park didn’t look like the team who had dismantled Elgin 4-1 in their previous home game.
MacDonald had another opportunity with a header in the second half, then sent a lob over the top with Hart scrambling, but there wasn’t enough on target.
The Glasgow side threatened through substitute Michael Ruth on a couple of occasions late on but it ended all square and attention now turns to next week’s Forthbank clash with Elgin, who are one position and two points below the fifth-placed Binos.
