Queen’s Park are the visitors to Bayview Stadium tomorrow afternoon as East Fife look to build on last Saturday’s well-earned 2-0 victory at Stair Park. Manager Darren Young was a happy man following the win, particularly with three midfielders having to call off through injury during the week. New signings Connor McManus and Adam Livingstone were handed their debut, with Robert Jones also being given an early introduction after Chris Duggan’s first-half departure after sustaining a heavy knock.
Despite the Spiders’ lowly league position, Gus MacPherson’s men can always be expected to provide tough opposition, and having won both encounters between the sides this season will be desperate to pull clear of the automatic relegation place they currently occupy. The Methil men’s record against Queen’s Park in recent years has been less than impressive, with the Fifers last victory at Bayview occurring more than nine years ago when goals from Greig McDonald, Chris Templeman and a double from Stevie Crawford secured a 4-1 success.
Once again East Fife physiotherapist George Good’s treatment table has been in high demand, with Kyle Wilkie, Craig Thomson and Mark Docherty all sidelined last week, while Greg Fotheringham misses out for the visitors through suspension after his sending off in the defeat to Raith Rovers at Hampden Stadium .
Supporters of both clubs are reminded that they are welcome to enjoy refreshments at the stadium bars before and after the game.
