Queens Park 2-2 Annan Athletic

Queens Park had to settle for a share of the spoils at home to Annan Athletic after a pulsating 2-2 draw at Hampden Park.

The home side, top of the Scottish Third Divison on goal difference, were behind after just 20 minutes when Annan midfielder Graeme Ramage finished smartly from six yards after a Scott Chaplain assist.

The visitors when close again a few minutes later with Ramage this time the architect with an outswinging corner, which Peter Watson fired wide from inside the penalty area.

Lawrence Shankland got the home side back on level terms before half-time, finishing clinically from a Sean Burns cross from the right in the 37th minute.

The 17-year-old grabbed his second of the game to give his side the lead just minutes after the interval, firing a right-footed strike into the top corner from 20 yards out.

But Micheal McGowan's left-footed strike from 18 yards denied Queens Park a fourth successive win in all competitions, as Annan picked up a deserved point.

Robertson banned for leaders

Third Division leaders Queen's Park will be without promising full-back Andrew Robertson against Annan as he serves the second game of a two-match ban.

The Spiders will also be missing Giuseppe Capuano and Allan Urquhart as they look to make it four league wins in a row and open up a three-point gap on Peterhead.

Two former Hampden players could upset head coach Gardner Speirs' plans as he explained: "We lost Michael Daly and David Murray to Annan over the summer and I'm sure they will want to come here and remind everyone how good they are.

"Annan will be hurt after losing to Buckie last Saturday and that will make a difficult game even more difficult."

Annan have added former Hamilton youngster David Hopkirk to their squad for the trip after agreeing a loan deal with Queen of the South.

Midfielder Jack Steele and striker Graeme Bell continue to be out through injury with Galabank boss Harry Cairney looking for a positive reaction from his side following their shock Scottish Cup replay loss to Buckie Thistle last Saturday.

Cairney said: "It was a really awful result last weekend but a win at Queen's Park would be a good way to start recovering from it. We need the players to stand tall in this game as we cannot sit back and let Queen's Park get their passing game going.

"They will do that for fun all day if you let them."
