Queens Park 5-1 East Stirling- Report.
Spiders seal play-off berth
Queens Park cemented their place in the Scottish Third Division play-offs with an emphatic 5-1 victory over rock-bottom East Stirling.
The win moves them a point away from second-placed Stanraer and leaves Shire eight points adrift at the foot of the table.
Top-scorer Jamie Longworth opened the scoring for the home side on the half-hour mark, meeting a Peter Bradley cross with a right-foot shot.
Anthony Quinn's close-range finish made it 2-0 after half-time before he grabbed his second with a header 10 minutes later.
Sean Burns had added a fourth for the hosts before Shire's Graeme Ramage fired in from 20 yards to register a consolation.
The dismissal of Rhys Devlin for a second bookable offence and a late penalty from the Spiders' Martin McBride completed a miserable afternoon for East Stirling.
