Lumsden waits on Rowen

Arbroath's loan signing Liam Rowan picked up a knock playing for Falkirk's Under-20 side and is rated as extremely doubtful for the visit of Queen's Park.

Already ruled out are the injured Adam Hunter (ankle) and Paul McManus (knee) with recently appointed manager Todd Lumsden keen to build on Saturday's 5-0 win over Berwick Rangers.

Lumsden said: "When we got a goal up at the weekend the players relaxed and put on a fine display where they moved the ball about really well. There has been little between us and Queen's Park all season and I am sure we will head to Hampden on Saturday with everything to play for."

Queen's Park have highly rated youngster Shaun Rooney available after an ankle injury as they look to end a run of 10 consecutive defeats in the play-offs.

James Baty remains out with a groin injury with head coach Gus MacPherson ignoring speculation linking him with the manager's position at Dunfermline.

MacPherson said: "I am focusing only on getting Queen's Park a good result at a tough venue. We have played at a consistently high level all season and need to keep that going to get something at Gayfield.

"I have never been involved in the play-offs before but I am looking forward to them as they have a cup-tie feeling."
