Stirling Albion 1 - 2 Queen's Park

Saturday 1st September 2012
J Flood (10)J Brough (21)
J Longworth (83)

Longworth strike wins the day

Jamie Longworth's late strike was the difference as Queens Park picked up a 2-1 win at Stirling.

The hosts had started the brighter at The Forthbank Stadium and were in front after just 10 minutes, Joshua Flood heading home Daly McSorley's cross for his first goal of the season.

Yet Queens Park were level ten minutes later through defender James Brough's close-range effort and the visitors continued to threaten before the break.

Both sides had chances to go in front in the second half, with Mark Ferry having Stirling's best effort before substitute Lawrence Shankland curled inches wide for the visitors.

Longworth's second goal of the campaign won it for The Spiders just seven minutes from time, neatly finishing after David Anderson's through ball.

Stirling hopeful on Allison and Ashe

Stirling will hand fitness tests to Brian Allison and Danny Ashe ahead of their clash against Queens Park as they look to get back to winning ways after two successive defeats.

Striker Bradley Coyne has been ruled out long-term and Shaun Fagan is not yet ready to return, with manager Greig McDonald also unsure if expectant father Jamie McCunnie will be available.

McDonald does have a nice selection problem as well, he said: "We won against Alloa in a Stirlingshire Cup tie in midweek and some of the players that night did their chances of playing in this game no harm at all.

"Queens will be buoyant after beating Dundee so we will need to get our sleeves rolled up and put on a good performance."

Queens Park have doubts over midfielder Michael Keenan as they head to Forthbank for the first time in over three-and-a-half years.

Keenan picked up a knock in Wednesday's 2-1 League Cup success over Clydesdale Bank Premier League side Dundee.

The experienced Tony Quinn is also struggling to make the trip due to a hamstring problem.

Speaking about Keenan and Quinn, head coach Gardner Speirs said: "I have not written off the chances of either of them playing as they are both hardy characters.

"This is the last game before the international break and you never want to go into one of them having been beaten.

"The players were on a high after Wednesday but a Thursday night training session got their minds refocused."
