No luck for Peterhead

An own-goal from Steven Noble helped Queens Park strengthen their position in second place with a 2-0 win at Peterhead.

The Blue Toon midfielder miscued into his own net with 12 minutes gone, after good work by Jamie Longworth on the left-side of the area.

Spiders' boss Gardner Speirs was without a host of first-team regulars, but the replacements grasped their chance as the visitors defeated Jim McInally's side for the first time in eight matches.

In the second half they extended their lead as they hit Peterhead on the counter.

After 50 minutes, a cross from Sean Burns found Lawrence Shankland on the right-side of the six-yard box, and the striker converted a low, right-footed shot to inflict a first defeat in five for the hosts.

Bavidge hamstrung for Blue Toon

The Blue Toon's attempt to move into second place with victory against Queen's Park has been dealt a blow with the news that striker Martin Bavidge has been ruled out with a hamstring problem.

Knee injuries sideline Callum MacDonald and Davie Ross while Scott Ross looks set to miss out as well with an ankle problem.

Peterhead boss Jim McInally said: "I always enjoying playing against Queen's Park as they play with an openness that is very welcome.

"We had a goalless draw with Stirling last week but to be fair to our players they created the game's only chances and looked very solid in defence.

"The same type of performance with a goal this time would be very welcome as would the three points it would bring."

Second placed Queen's Park make the trip north without Michael Keenan who is suspended following his sending off against Berwick Rangers last week.

Paul Gallacher will also be missing for the Spiders with a hamstring problem while Tony Quinn with a hip injury and their numbers are further reduced as Jamie Brough and David Anderson both miss out through work commitments.

Hampden head coach Gardner Speirs has added youngsters Bernard Coll, Conor McVey and Mark O'Hagen to compensate.

Speirs said: "Peterhead are a good experienced side who will be extra keen to beat us and move into second place.

"We are a bit low on numbers but our young players have never let us down when they have been brought in before and I am sure they won't on this occasion either."
