Team News: Queen's Park
There is just a single fitness concern for the Queen's Park manager Ray McKinnon to be concerned about from a near full-strength group. Peter Grant (Knock) won’t play.
Team News: Edinburgh City
Thanks to a mainly healthy group of players, there’s just the one fitness problem for the Edinburgh City gaffer Gary Naysmith to be concerned with. Kelby Mason (Knock) misses out for this game.
When taking all factors into account, Edinburgh City are certainly able to put one past this Queen's Park outfit, however it probably won’t quite be enough to prevent defeat.
We’re predicting a close game with a 2-1 win for Queen's Park at the end of the 90 minutes. There shouldn’t be much in it, either way.
