QUEEN’S Park sit on top of the Scottish third division despite having a game in hand of their two closest rivals.

The Hampden side currently have 13 points, as do second place Peterhead, but the Spiders are winning the goal difference battle.

Meanwhile Glasgow rivals Rangers, who, like Peterhead, have also played seven games, are a point behind.

This Saturday, after last week’s clash was postponed, QP will finally get their chance to host Annan Athletic.

Spiders fans will have to take their opportinities while they can to soak up the Hampden atmosphere.

This week, it was announced the stadium will close for a year until November 2013, while the stadium is transformed into the athletics arena for the Commonwealth games.

Queen’s Park await a decision from the SFL as to whether they will be allowed to play some of their games in each of the two seasons at Hampden.

Lesser Hampden, the small ground adjacent to the main stadium, will be off limits, as it is set to become a warm-up area for the athletes.

Firhill has already emerged as one option and Queen’s Park hope to have their fixture future decided by the end of this year.

SFL chief executive David Longmuir said: “We will work with Queen’s Park and other member clubs to ensure that

suitable arrangements are

made for all displaced league fixtures.

“We will also turn our thoughts to possible venues for displaced League Cup semi-finals and the final itself”.

Meanwhile, Pollok are gearing up to take on local rivals Arthurlie at Dunterlie Park on Saturday.

The Newlandsfield side will go into the game in high spirits, after progressing to round two of the New Coin automatics west of Scotland Cup after a fiery encounter with Neilston.

Lok secured a 2-0 home win thanks to a first half strike from Tony Fraser and a 79th minute volley from Jamie Docherty.

The win was made all the more easy after Hobbs was dismissed by referee Grant Irvine in the 44th minute after aiming a punch at Peter McMahon.
