Rutherglen Reformer - - Sports - Mur­ray Spooner

Queen’s Park’s league two ti­tle chal­lenge suf­fered an­other blow af­ter they were held to a 1-1 draw at home to Stir­ling Al­bion.

Paul Woods saw his first half penalty saved but the Spi­ders net­ted af­ter 43 min­utes when Chris Dug­gan cap­i­talised on a Ross Forsyth mis­take to net.

Jamie McKer­non and Vin­nie Berry went close for the hosts, be­fore Steven Doris lev­elled with a side-foot fin­ish from 14 yards af­ter 63 min­utes.

The re­sult leaves Queen’s a point off the play-off po­si­tion and eight be­hind league lead­ers East Fife.

Spi­ders boss Gus MacPher­son said:“We prob­a­bly had to win if we’re to com­pete for the ti­tle.

“We have four games left, with three away from home, and that might suit us. We’ve drawn too many but it’s dif­fi­cult to break teams down when they come here and sit in.

“We know it’s go­ing to be tough, it’s been tough all sea­son, es­pe­cially at home.

“It’s been dis­ap­point­ing and frus­trat­ing not to break teams down and not cap­i­talise on a lot of our good play.”

Queen’s Park will visit Ochil­view Park this week­end to take on league two strug­glers East Stir­ling.
