Peterhead v Queens Park match preview

Nov 25, 2022

Stand in coach Davie Nicholls takes charge for the second game whilst a new manager is found. Queen’s Park are the visitors on Scottish Cup duty, the Glasgow side who were promoted last season to the Championship, make a welcome return to Balmoor. Asked about the threat Queen’s provide, he said “they have improved a lot and look like a side that are preparing for promotion. This will be a stern test for our boys but we will be aiming to win the match. They have a very professional set up now and I know Owen Coyle well having played with him before. We will treat them with respect but in the same manner we are gunning for a win.” Queen’s Park had a stunning 5-2 win away from home last weekend against Raith Rovers. The influential Simon Murray netting a brace who will be a danger as he has been in our meetings last season.
Team News: Injuries this week to Ryan Strachan (damaged eye socket) may rule him out for a number of weeks, Ryan Dow has a hamstring issue and will be out and Russell McLean, although back running, is still short on match fitness. On the plus side, Julien Carre who had a slight calf problem, should be ok to play and Ugandan international Enock Walusimbi trained on Tuesday night so may also make the starting line up. Finally, Andy McDonald who has been carrying an Achilles injury had an injection on Tuesday and has been told to rest up a little. A decision on whether he will play will be left to the last minute to see if there has been any reaction.
