The trip to The Falkirk Stadium is a considerably shorter journey than the one to Bala Town where Queen’s Park won in Round Three with the meeting in Stirlingshire also the first ever between the clubs in this competition.
The clubs were however together in League 1 in Season 2021/22 with Queen’s Park recording a 1-0 away success and then a 6-0 win at home with the final two meetings ending in 1-1 draws.
Robin Veldman spoke to QPTV this morning at Lochinch about Saturday’s cup-tie. The Head Coach covered:

The SPFL Trust Trophy so far
Queen’s Park enjoyed a trip to Wales in the last round of the competition and picked up a 3-0 success over Bala Town. Jack Turner and Barry Hepburn scored before half-time in the Welsh sun with Ruari Paton completing a fine afternoon with a late strike.
Falkirk, who have won this trophy four times, reached this stage thanks to a 1-0 win at Championship side Ayr United. Liam Henderson was the match-winner with a first half goal.
Goalkeeper Callan McKenna is out for a short period of time with a knee issue and Ben McPherson is cup-tied with the only other absentee being Grant Savoury who is set to return to some light training shortly.
