Stenhousemuir fall to second straight defeat as late goals cost them once again
Just like the previous week at Annan they saw one point turn in to nothing in the final five minutes when Bob McHugh put the Spiders in front before Simon Murray made it 3-1 in injury time as Stenny chased the game.
It was another case of key decisions at key times from his players that left boss Davie Irons bitterly disappointed in the result.
He said: "We were right in the game till the 87th minute, we were on top for periods but were naive when it came to seeing the game out.
"We've spoken about key moments in games before and it's something we're not doing well at the moment.
"You've not got much time when you lose a goal in the 87th minute and they only got the third because we were chasing the game trying to get something out of it.
"I went there expecting to get something from the game, Queen's Park are odds on favourites to win the league with the resources and money they have but I wasn't worried about how we would compete.
"We'll look back and think it was an opportunity to get something out of a game with the best team in the league.
"It's a big lesson and one we have to learn from."
Now Stenny go from facing the side top of the table to the side sitting bottom Brechin City the visitors to Ochilview on Saturday.
"They're not winning a lot of games but that doesn't make it any easier,” said Irons.
"They've got a new management team including Gery McCabe who I have huge respect for. He's very knowledgeable and will have them" prepared. It doesn't matter what level you are at, there are no easy games and you have to compete and earn the right to win.”
"We will give Brechin the respect they deserve and be prepared for a tough game."
Now under the management of Michael Paton, assisted by the experience Gerry McCabe, the Angus side go in to the match on the back of a 4-1 home defeat to Stranraer last weekend and with just one win to their name all season.
