Queen’s Park goalkeeper Willie Muir has set his sights on winning League Two once the season resumes – but fears that it might be scrapped.

Ray McKinnon’s side sit top of the pile on 23 points, five more than Elgin City after nine games, so the former Airdrie and East Kilbride shot-stopper hopes they can keep that going.

But he understands why the SFA might need to pull the plug.

Muir, from Blackwood in South Lanarkshire, said: “I think everybody has that wee bit of fear, to be fair, but people’s lives are more important.

“It’s football, but obviously you want it to finish, so hopefully it has been stopped now early enough where the weather’s not the best, pitches might not be good, and say it’s maybe six weeks from now, the weather might be that wee bit better and hopefully we can get the games going.

“The season’s meant to finish on May 1, so we could even run it on when the weather is good, and catch up the games then. I hope they don’t cancel it, but you can understand why if they do.

“Nobody’s ever been in this situation before, so it’s new for everybody.”

Otherwise the season is going well for the Spiders, who are on a good run of form, with seven wins and two draws from their nine games.

They lost 3-0 to Queen of the South in their last outing, but otherwise it has gone well.

Lower League Football Suspension

Muir said: “I suppose it’s all going to plan so far, and there will be bumps in the road, but our main object is to win the league, so hopefully we can stick at that and run it.

“Going full-time has made a big difference to us. It’s massive, especially in League Two. Some guys are going onto building sites and putting a hard day’s graft in, while we’re just going to training.

“I’m not saying we’re not working hard, but we’re working on the things you do every day to get better, so it can only be a good thing being full-time in the league. It would be massive for us to win League Two. The club has a plan and this would be us accomplishing the first part of that, so I hope it happens.”
