Longworth stays on goal trail

Jamie Longworth scored his third goal in as many games as Queen's Park came from behind to beat nine-man Berwick 2-1.

Rangers striker Darren Lavery found the bottom left of Neil Parry's net to score his 14th goal of the season and give his side a 1-0 lead after eight minutes.

The hosts drew level in the 24th minute when Longworth struck the ball high into Marc McCallum's goal from the left side of the area.

Berwick went down to 10 men in the 55th minute when Kevin McDonald saw red for violent conduct.

Six minutes after McDonald's dismissal, Anthony McParland put the Spiders in front when his sensational 30-yard strike found the top corner of McCallum's net.

Queen's Park midfielder Michael Keenan was dismissed for a second bookable offence in the 73rd minute, before Berwick's Steven Notman also received a second yellow card to leave the visitors with nine men.

Double doubt for Queen's

Second-placed Queen's Park have major doubts over Paul Gallacher (hamstring) and Tony Quinn (groin) as they host a Berwick side that sit five places below them but only seven points behind at Hampden.

Youngster Blair Spittal, who made his first start as the Spiders lost 4-0 to Rangers last Saturday, keeps his place in the squad and will play if Gallacher or Quinn fail to make it.

Head coach Gardner Speirs said: "It is always a tough game when we face Berwick Rangers and this one will be no different.

"We will go into it disappointed at losing 4-0 to Rangers but knowing things could have been different if we had taken the chances we had created in the first half."

Dene Droudge (knee) and Marc Lancaster (back) are the only absentees for Berwick as they look to keep up with the favourites to secure a play-off spot.

Manager Ian Little is hoping the magic of Hampden will inspire his players and said: "I always enjoyed coming here when I was a player and that helped me lift my game.

"If the Berwick players can do that, then we are in with a good chance of winning. Queen's are a really good footballing side but we cannot afford to watch them play and we have to take the game to them.

"We have good strikers who can win the game for us if we keep things tight at the back and create chances for them."
