Longworth at the double

Jamie Longworth scored twice to help Queen's Park earn a 3-2 victory at Stranraer.

The home side came into the game having lost three on the bounce and went behind after 10 minutes when Longworth applied the finish to Richard Little's assist.

Martin Grehan's 64th-minute strike levelled the scores before Longworth headed Daryll Meggatt's cross into the bottom corner to regain the visitors' lead just a minute later.

Two minutes later Owen Ronald set up Anthony Quinn to double the Spiders' lead.

Keith Knox's men were given a route back into the game in the 73rd minute when Paul McGinn brought down Michael Moore inside the area.

Christopher Aitken tucked away the penalty kick, but the hosts were unable to find a late equaliser.

Grehan came closest with an effort from distance which flashed wide.

Trio boost Blues

Stranraer have Steven Noble, Martin Grehan and Stuart McColm all looking fit to return after injury as they face a Queen's Park side that they will meet in the play-offs.

David MacGregor, Sean Winter and Stephen Stirling are all carrying knocks and look set to miss out as the Blues look to reclaim the second spot they lost to the Spiders last weekend.

Stair Park manager Keith Knox said: "After a long unbeaten run against Queen's Park over previous seasons we have been beaten by them three times in this campaign.

"It would be nice to have run to an end before we face each other next month.

"Both sides will want to finish second in the table so this should be an open game."

Queen's Park will be without midfielder Martin McBride due to work commitments.

Hampden head coach Gardner Speirs could also be missing wingers David Murray and Ian Watt who are both carrying knocks with Michael Daly added as cover.

Speirs said: "We have worked hard to get into second place and we want to stay there. I want us to be heading into play-offs, ironically against Stranraer, with a lot of confidence and positive momentum behind us."

"Winning is the best way to build that confidence so there will be no easing off from Queen's Park in our last couple of games.

Stranraer will be the same and I am sure they will want to get one over us before the play-offs."
