Bottom of the table Queen's Park will again be looking for their first Scottish League Two win of the season when Albion visit.

A lunchtime fitness test will determine if defender Jamie Brough can help the Spiders in their quest but the Hampden side have ruled out Grant Mosson (groin) and James Baty (shoulder).

Head coach Gardner Speirs is looking for the recent improvements shown on the field to continue.

Speirs said: "We have been getting better every week for a few weeks now and hopefully that will lead to a strong performance against Albion Rovers. We drew with the league leaders last week and if we can improve on that performance then we will be happy."

Albion will have Barry Russell in the squad that is bound for the national stadium despite the defender having six stitches to a head wound picked up in last Saturday's goalless draw with Elgin.

An ankle injury keeps Pat Walker out while Peter Innes is again absent after a recent car accident, with Chris Dallas and Darren Miller both facing fitness tests.

Manager James Ward said: "Queen's have experienced players back and that is helping them. They are at home and will see this game as being a chance to get that first win

"We will be just as determined to win the game for our purposes."
