Peterhead are the visitors to Firhill on Saturday as the Spiders look to put the disappointment of last week’s late equaliser at Broadwood behind them. Jim McInally’s side make the long journey south in the hope of erasing their own disappointment having lost narrowly at home to Cove Rangers last weekend, with a late Rory McAllister penalty separating the sides.
Ahead of the game the gaffer gave his thoughts to the club media team, saying: “We are looking forward to what we know will be yet another tough test for us. Peterhead are organised and skilful team with plenty of experience at this level. They know how to win games and will no doubt be looking at this game as an opportunity to do that therefore we expect a real difficult game.”
“From our perspective we are obviously keen to try and get back to winning ways and bury the huge disappointment that was the late equaliser at Broadwood last weekend. We will use that disappointment and frustration to re-organise, re-focus and as a little bit extra motivation going in to this match.”
“Overall we have started really well and I am proud of how the players have applied themselves. I’m very pleased that the players are every bit as disappointed as I am when we feel points have been dropped. It’s a great attitude to have. It helps further bolster the team spirit that has been built and further motivate us to try and pick up three points every week.”
“On the squad front this will be our eighth game in the campaign and we have a couple of little niggles within the squad that we need to keep an eye on and manage. For me it’s vital that when players are featuring, they are fit to do so and if anyone is struggling we rotate as necessary. We do have one or two who are in that bracket and we’ll wait until closer to kick off to make a call on those, but in general I feel the condition of the squad is excellent; they’re fit, sharp and mentally hungry. I feel that we have a good group that allows us to rotate if we need to.”

Stadium Access – Due to an event being held by Scottish Canals on the north side of the stadium, all access to the stadium is via South Drive.
Accessible Parking Spaces – At our last home game, a number of vehicles were parked inappropriately in the bays marked “Disabled Parking” adjacent to the rear of the Jackie Husband Stand. This resulted in a number of spectators being unable to use these reserved spaces and having to walk much further from their car to the turnstiles than should have been the case.
As a result, the club has worked out a plan that these reserved spaces will be blocked off and supervised by stewards. Any spectator who has previously advised the office they require an accessible parking space, should enter the car park via South Drive as normal, on approach to the accessible parking area show their blue badge to stewards, who will move bollards to allow parking.
Supporters’ Association Shop – The Supporters’ Association will be operating the QP shop, starting with our home game with Peterhead. The shop, loaded with QP goodies, will be located inside the stadium close to the home turnstiles. Payment for purchases should be made by credit or debit card. The shop will operate from 2pm until shortly before kick-off, so arrive in good time to garb a bargain!
