                                                    Manager Paul Sheerin has told his players to put thoughts of playing Celtic in the Scottish Cup in a fortnight out of their minds for the 90 minutes.

                                                    Sheerin said: "I am not going to lie and say that no-one has mentioned Celtic after our win over Inverurie as they have.

                                                    "It is an exciting tie but we have to stop thinking about it for a while as playing Queen of the South is a huge game.

                                                    "They turned us over 6-0 and knocked us out of the Ramsdens Cup at the semi-final stage so there is plenty of incentive to do well regardless of looking to secure a starting place against Celtic." Queen of the South have included fit again defender Mark Durnan for the trip north to face one of his former clubs.

                                                    The Doonhamers have striker Kevin Smith out due to a groin problem but midfielder David Hopkirk is available after his return from a successful loan period at Annan where he scored five times in three games with Manager Allan Johnston said: "David is back and full of confidence so the loan move worked well for everyone and he will travel to Gayfield.

                                                    Visitors take the treble Steven Doris' two penalties were not enough to prevent Arbroath's 3-2 home defeat against Queen of the South.

                                                    Allan Johnston's table-toppers had already recorded two wins against their hosts this season, including a 6-0 victory in September, and went ahead after 22 minutes thanks to Nicholas Clark's left-footed finish.

                                                    Their lead was doubled six minutes later when Christopher Higgins found the back of the net with a low strike from the edge of the area.

                                                    Paul Sheerin's side halved the arrears on the stroke of half-time when Doris scored his first of the afternoon after Stephen McKenna had upended Paul Currie.

                                                    Mark Durnan restored the Doonhammers' two-goal advantage on the hour mark when he slammed home a close-range effort.
