Little out for cheers

Berwick entertain Queen's Park as they look to make it six games in a row without defeat against the Spiders.

The Borderers have brought in goalkeeper Youssef Bejaoui on loan from Cowdenbeath to bolster their ranks and he could go straight into the starting line-up.

Striker Darren Gribben is available after an injury, however defender Chris McLeod remains out due to a knock.

Manager Ian Little looking for his men to give the home fans something to cheer.

He said: "Our home form has not been good enough this season as we have only won three times in total here.

"Our last win at Shielfield was back in November, ironically against Queen's Park and a repeat of that would be very welcome indeed.

"It will not be easy as they are a good side and deserve to be there."

Queen's Park's duo of goalkeeper Neil Parry and full-back Paul McGinn miss their first games of the season through suspension.

Reserve keeper Adam Strain and the available-again Jamie Brough will replace the banned pair, however striker Craig Smith misses out due a hamstring injury and winger David Murray is doubtful with the same problem.

Gardner Speirs' side are looking to keep up their pursuit of leaders Alloa with a win, however the head coach has warned his men.

"Berwick are a very good side who have probably been too inconsistent for their manager's liking but they are certainly capable of beating anyone on their day as we know only too well," he said.
