Impressive Peterhead cruise

Bryan Gilfillan scored his fifth goal of the campaign as Peterhead clinched second spot with a 3-0 win over play-off opponents Queen's Park.

The visitors went ahead in the 21st minute when Gilfillan latched onto David Cox's cross to head past Queen's Park stopper Blair Lochhead from close range.

The Spiders pushed for an equaliser in the closing stages of the first half but they could not find a way past Graeme Smith in Peterhead's net.

The Blue Toon doubled their lead seven minutes after the re-start when Andrew Rodgers drilled in from 12 yards.

Jim McInally's men completed the rout in the 79th minute when Dean Cowie found the top left of Lochhead's goal from 20 yards.

Capuano misses dress rehearsal

Queen's Park face Peterhead just four days before the sides meet again in the promotion play-offs without midfielder Giuseppe Capuano.

Capuano is suspended after his dismissal against Montrose last weekend, while Ricky Little remains sidelined due to a broken bone in his foot and Blair Spittal misses out through illness.

But goalkeeper Neil Parry and Jamie Brough could both return after respective ankle injuries.

Head coach Gardner Speirs said: "This game has a fair amount at stake as both sides will want to say that they finished as runners-up with home advantage in the second leg also up for grabs.

"Whoever wins could also claim to have a psychological advantage for the play-offs, so it's important that we do well in this meeting."

Peterhead will be without suspended striker Rory McAllister, but manager Jim McInally has both Bryan Gilfillan and Ryan McCann available following injuries.

Callum MacDonald and Davie Ross remain sidelined following respective knee operations and Martin Bavidge is missing due to a hamstring problem.

McInally, whose side are chasing an eighth successive win, said: "There's no point in changing the team as we meet each other in midweek as we have a lot of momentum with us just now and do not want that to stop.

"As soon as Rangers were placed in the Third Division we said that our objective was to finish second and a win or a draw at Hampden means that we have secured that."
