COWDENBEATH'S players will be told to get any thoughts of the big William Hill Scottish Cup tie with Rangers out of their minds when Queen's Park visit Central Park tonight in a re-arranged Ladbrokes League 2 game.

Manager Gary Bollan insists there is plenty of time to think about the visit of the club he starred in defence for and he wants total concentration on the Spiders.

The stats show that if Cowden can win tonight and then beat Albion Rovers on Saturday, at Cliftonhill, they will move close to the top four clubs.

Said Mr Bollan: "It is a really exciting prospect playing Rangers in the Cup but it is not until mid January and we have a lot of important league business to deal with before that.

"We want to pile up as many points as we can from the eight league games we have coming up for if we can achieve that we can move up the table into a handy position.

"But we will only beat Queen's Park if we play with the same assuredness we showed at Annan a couple of weeks ago."

Cowden are without suspended right-back Fraser Mullen and injured defender Pat Scullion plus attacker Martin Scott has a knock picked up in the Fife Cup-tie with Burntisland Shipyard and is also missing.

Look for Jamie Pyper taking over at full-back but otherwise there will be few changes from the side which beat Brora in the Cup on Saturday.

The game has a 7.45pm start.
