Spiders return to six of the best

the Spider’s bounced back from last week’s 4-0 drubbing by Motherwell to demolish Elgin by six goals to nil.

Fox in the box Jamie Longworth scored four as Queen’s Park hammered Elgin to cement their place in the Scottish Third Division play-off places.

The hosts took the lead ten minutes before half-time when a bullet of a Martin McBride free-kick hit the back of the net.

Longworth opened his account eight minutes after half time when he hit the top corner with a right footed strike.

just more than ten minutes later he scored a header - his eighth goal of the season.

His hat trick was secured soon after when he hit a beautiful shot from the edge of the box. QP’s fifth and his fourth came from a powerful drive which gave Elgin goalie Zander Clark no chance whatsoever.

Craig Smith’s firm header rounded off a fine afternoon for Gardner Speirs’ side.

The Spiders are now within touching distance of third-placed Annan Athletic with a game in hand.
