McAllister in fitness battle

Peterhead's top goalscorer Rory McAllister is struggling to be fit for the second leg of his side's Irn-Bru Scottish Second Division play-off semi-final against Queen's Park.

McAllister sustained a leg knock as the Blue Toon won 1-0 at Hampden Park in the first leg.

Andy Rodgers, who came on as a substitute and scored the winning goal, will start if McAllister does not make it, while Dean Cowie is expected to recover from a dead-leg.

Callum MacDonald and Davie Ross, who have both had knee surgery, and Martin Bavidge (hamstring) are out.

Manager Jim McInally said: ``This tie is pretty finely poised, but our late goal means that Queen's Park have to attack, which will see an exciting game.

``That is fine with us as we have a strong defence and a pretty decent attack as well.''

Queen's Park will be without centre-back Ricky Little due to a broken bone in his foot.

Fellow defender Peter Bradley is struggling to make it due to a hamstring problem as the Spiders look to end a run of nine play-off games without a win.

Queen's Park head north determined to shrug off the first-leg defeat due to an injury-time penalty.

Head coach Gardner Speirs said: ``Our plans have not changed that much as we had always viewed this as a 180-minute contest where we had to score to progress.

``We score now we force extra time so not much is getting altered.

``We travelled to Balmoor back in February and won 2-0. It goes without saying a repeat of that would be a very good day's work indeed.''
