Queen’s Park boss Gus MacPher­son ad­mit­ted get­ting the club’s first points on the board was crucial.

In their sec­ond game of the League One sea­son Dar­ren Miller’s penalty can­celled out Stephen Stir­ling’s ef­fort and Josh Watt’s 90th minute goal se­cured the win for the Spi­ders on Satur­day.

MacPher­son said: “It was crucial to get the points. I have been very happy with the way the play­ers have been work­ing.

“It was the best time to score be­cause it doesn’t give the op­po­si­tion much time to re­act.

“Cer­tainly, the way we played in the sec­ond half, I would say we de­served to win the game and it gives the play­ers a boost.

“In the sec­ond half we went 3-4-3, which pushed Sten­house­muir back and gave more space to Woods and Galt and Dar­ren Miller, who came into the game more.“

Queen’s now travel north to face Brechin City and the Spi­ders gaffer knows it will not be easy for his men.

“From the start of the year they must be one of the in-form sides at that level. It will be a tough game. We had them watched over the past couple of weeks and they are play­ing with a lot of con­fi­dence.” Sten­house­muir v Queen’s Park match re­port: page 67
