Queen's Park hold on for points

Anthony McParland's second-half goal helped Queen's Park to a 3-2 win over Stirling.

Aidan Connolly put the visitors in front in extraordinary circumstances when his cross from the right wing beat everyone in the Stirling box and ended up in the back of the net from 25 yards out.

Connolly then turned provider as Queen's Park extended their lead in the 52nd minute when Paul McGinn latched onto his pass before firing past Stirling keeper Mark Peat from 12 yards out.

The Binos hit back six minutes later when Mark Ferry found the top corner from the right side of the area, before McParland scored a free-kick from 25 yards out in the 66th minute to make it 3-1 .

Stirling's Mark Ferry headed in from close range in the 75th minute to set up a tense finale but Queen's Park held on to seal the win.

White returns for Albion

Stirling Albion welcome back Jordan White after a suspension as they host Queen's Park.

But Albion will be without Gary Thom and Graeme Weir as they serve bans.

Steven Weir drops out as his short-term contract has ended, while player-manager Greig McDonald lists himself in the squad as he waits to see if Jamie McCunnie and Ross McGeachie get over a recent illness.

Brian Allison has shrugged off a knock and should be fine to play.

McDonald said: "We know Queen's Park are in good form just now but we have won twice and drawn once in our last three games and should have taken something from the game we were beaten in at Montrose.

"Moving off the bottom of the table is in sight now and a win in this game could do it."

Jamie Brough will not feature despite having served a suspension.

Work commitments have ruled the defender out of Saturday's clash.

Brough is the only absentee from the Spiders squad to give head coach Gardner Speirs a selection headache.

"The boys that played against Rangers last Saturday were terrific and we changed things about for the Clyde game in midweek and the boys that came in were terrific as well," he explained.

"We want to build on these performances and get some momentum behind us.

"I have some tough choices to make and I need to get them spot on as Stirling Albion have improved throughout the season and will be out to make up for the two wins we have had against them."
