Smith rescues point

Craig Smith scored the second of two late goals to earn Queens Park a 2-2 draw with Montrose.

The visitors took the lead after 28 minutes when Lloyd Young headed home from 12 yards.

Queens Park's Richard Little prevented Montrose from doing further damage on the brink of half-time when he blocked Craig McLeish's effort from six yards.

Montrose had a strong start to the second period and extended their lead through Scott Johnston's volley in the 64th minute.

Queens Park's Jamie Longworth then fired what appeared to be a consolation goal in the 86th minute, before Craig Smith broke Montrose hearts when he swept home Ian Watt's corner in the 90th minute

Anderson back to boost Queen's

Queen's Park will be without defender Jamie Brough for the home game with Montrose, but hard-working midfielder David Anderson is available after injury.

Centre-half Brough is unavailable due to work commitments, while Anderson returns to contention following a calf injury.

Head coach Gardner Speirs said: "We were beaten 5-4 by Partick Thistle in midweek and I want us to keep doing what we were doing in our opponents half, but be better in our own half.

"We got our league campaign off to a good start with three points from East Stirling last Saturday and it would be fantastic to get our home games off and running positively as well.

"Montrose will be disappointed at losing a two-goal lead last Saturday to Clyde and doubly determined to win here."

Montrose will be without Martin Boyle, but new loan signing Leighton MacIntosh could make his debut.

Boyle joined Dundee on the eve of their trip to Queen's Park and MacIntosh has travelled in the opposite direction. Midfielder Jamie Winter remains sidelined.

Manager Stuart Garden is looking forward to his first trip to the national stadium as a manager.

He said: "It's a great place to take your team to play football as it's always a great surface against a side that like to play football on the ground.

"Good luck to Martin at Dens, but I'm sure Leighton will add a lot of value. We're not just going down to enjoy the occasion, we're going there to get a win."
