The season so far
Queen’s Park presently sit fifth in the Championship table with nine points from their six games. The Honest Men lie in ninth position having earned three points from five games this season.
Both teams go into the game on the back of disappointing results with Dunfermline leaving Hampden last Saturday having enjoyed a 2-0 success and Ayr losing 4-0 at home to Partick Thistle last Friday.
Will Tizzard returns to join a fully-fit squad from a one match ban for the hosts.
