QUEEN’S Park are all set for a visit to Ibrox on Saturday.

The Hampden side will take on Rangers at 3pm in the top of the table clash.

The Spiders are currently 19 points behind Rangers but with two games in hand.

The last time the two clubs met, in December, Rangers ran out 1-0 victors.

Billed by the local club as “the original Glasgow derby”, QP — the only amateur side in Scottish senior football — hope to stand their ground against their league rivals who have a six million pound wage bill.

After a nailbiting 3-2 win against Beith Juniors to take them into the fifth round of the Scottish Junior cup, Lok are back in league action on Saturday.

They take on rivals Clydebank at Holm Park, Yoker (kick off 2pm) in the stagecoach superleague premier division clash.

In a closed door friendly against Airdrie on Monday, Clydebank held their own but eventually fell 5-3 to the first division club.

Following Saturday’s game, Ryan McArdle — who scored the winning goal — said: “The team is getting there and the team spirit it much better.

“There are a lot of big teams in the Scottish Cup like Auchinleck and Linlithgow Rose and you never know it just depends on the luck of the draw.

“It’s the luck of the draw and hopefully we can stay away from one of the big two.”
