Queen's Park 0 - 1 Peterhead

Saturday 31st March 2012
R McAllister (54)

Blue Toon maintain hoodoo over Spiders

Play-off hopefuls Queen's Park failed to beat Peterhead for the fourth time this season, going down 1-0 at home.

Rory McAllister's 17th strike of the season separated the sides, all but ending the Spiders' title aspirations as they lost more ground to leaders Alloa.

McAllister curled an unstoppable effort from the edge of the penalty area in the 54th minute to give Peterhead their first win in three games.

The forward almost doubled his tally in the 62nd minute, but his 25-yard free-kick was well saved by Queen's Park goalkeeper Neil Parry.

The hosts have now lost twice in a row, following an eight game unbeaten run, and are four points behind second-placed Stranraer.

Duo banned for Peterhead clash

Queen's Park will be looking to bounce back from last weekend's 4-0 defeat to leaders Alloa by beating visitors Peterhead, but they will have to do so without the suspended pair of defender Jamie Brough and midfielder David Anderson.

Fit-again duo Darryl Meggat and Giuseppe Capuano look certain to be recalled in their place, with Hampden head coach Gardner Speirs saying: "The better team won last week but the scoreline was a bit cruel on us.

"We have to put that behind us and get back to winning ways and build some momentum behind us for what will hopefully be an exciting end to the season. Beating a Peterhead side that we have not beaten this season would be a great start to our run-in."

Peterhead will be without the injured pair of striker David Ross and on-loan Dundee United youngster Ross Smith as they look to meet manager Jim McInally's objective of finishing as high in the table as possible.

Winger Bryan Deasley should return after injury, with McInally saying: "Queen's Park will be looking to secure their place in the play-offs as soon as possible but I want us to finish as high as we can, so this game should be about two teams going all out for a win.

"I was disappointed with parts of our display against Berwick last weekend as we gave away soft goals and missed chances. That combination has been too prevalent this season."
