Arbroath vs Queen's Park - Preview

Last updated : 13 October 2006 By Andyboy
It was perhaps a tad unfotunate that Queen's didn't have a match straight away as to get the disappointing Shire defeat out their systems, but still, the players will be raring to go at Gayfield tomorrow.

The defeat made sure we lost the momentum built by a thumping 3-0 win over East Fife the previous week, but we still managed to move up a place, due to the Dirty Rovers 5-2 defeat at home to Stenhousemuir and we currently sit in 7th.

Arbroath have done well so far this season and have managed to build on their 3-0 win at Hampden on the opening day, in brillilant fashion. They sit 4 points behind leaders East Fife in 2nd place, John McGlashan's side sitting on 18 points.

Recent victories over East Stirling, Stenhousemuir and Elgin, and the form of key players such as Ian Dobbins, Barry Sellars and Willie Martin have given Lichties fans the confidence that their side can win the championship this season.

There will be no "full" match report from this site due to my failure to attend the game due to other reasons, so visit either the Official Website or for a full report.

There are a few injury worries for Billy Stark ahead of the match against Arbroath. David Weatherston, Frankie Carroll and Robert Dunn are all doubtful, Frankie extremely so, while left back Shaun Molloy, who has just recovered from injury, has suffered another setback and will miss out.
