Spittal back after beating illness

Queen's Park welcome back Blair Spittal to their squad to face Peterhead after illness and he is joined by suspension-free Giuseppe Capuano.

They will be joined by Neil Parry, Andrew Robertson, David Anderson and Jamie Longworth who were rested on Saturday as the Spiders lost 3-0 to the Blue Toon in their final league match of the season.

Head coach Gardner Speirs said: ``Peterhead put in a really powerful performance at the weekend and we did not defend as well as we can. Hopefully the players we have available now will allow us to turn those two things around.''

The Hampden side have not won in eight play-off ties over the last four years, and Speirs said: ``We cannot do anything about that. All we can do is look to beat Peterhead.''

Peterhead welcome back top goalscorer Rory McAllister from suspension as they visit Queen's Park just four days after clinching second spot over their hosts with a 3-0 win.

Manager Jim McInally is sweating on the fitness of three players with Stephen Noble (ankle), David Cox (knee) and Andy Rodgers (ankle) all facing fitness tests.

Definitely out for the Blue Toon are Callum MacDonald and Davie Ross after knee surgery and Martin Bavidge who has a hamstring problem.

McInally said: ``We have ended the season really strongly with eight wins in a row for the loss of one goal.

``I cannot ask for any better form than that. However, I do not see us winning by a 3-0 scoreline again this time and this tie will need to be settled at Balmoor on Saturday.''
