QUEEN'S PARK hitman Michael Daly reckons the next four days will have a huge bearing in the third division promotion race.
Queen's welcome old rivals Clyde to Hampden tonight knowing a win would cut leaders Alloa's margin at the top to nine points ahead of Saturday's meeting between the sides at Recreation Park.
Daly hit the final goal in Saturday's 4-1 rout of Berwick Rangers at Shielfield which moved them 10 points clear of fifth-placed Annan in the play-off positions.
And he knows tonight's match with the Bully Wee is the beginning of a crucial run for the Spiders.
The former Kilsyth Rangers striker said: “It looks as though Alloa have the league sewn up but we have a game in hand.
"If we can win that one and then get a result at Alloa on Saturday, the title could well be up for grabs.
"Saturday's win certainly keeps us in contention for the play-offs."
Meanwhile, Queen's have loaned first team fringe players Gavin Lachlan and Michael O'Hara to Pollok Juniors.
Boss Gardner Speirs said: "Both players have been out of the first team playing environment for a few months now and we view this as an excellent way of them getting their match sharpness back.
"Pollok were looking for some players so it is mutually beneficial move."
