Spiders hope for change of luck at Airdrie

Queen's Park gear up for first game at the Excelsior Stadium

Queen’s Park head coach Gardner Speirs is hoping that a change of scenery will bring a change of luck for his side.

League 2's bottom club have not won at Hampden this season and play their first home fixture at Airdrie’s Excelsior Stadium this Saturday against Montrose.

The Spiders have moved to Lanarkshire for a year as Hampden gets redeveloped for next summer’s Commonwealth Games and Speirs hopes that his side get an even break at their new home.

He said: “We have had a disappointing season in terms of results but our performances have been better than our points total would indicate. I feel sorry for the players as they are carrying no luck at all. They are working extremely hard but a few things have gone against them recently, whether it be the bounce of the ball, someone slipping or a referee’s decision.

“We will go to Airdrie and work hard but, if we can get the slice of luck that we have been missing, we can get our stay off to a great start. The artificial pitch is very similar to the one we had at Lesser Hampden and hopefully that means we will adjust quickly to it.”
