Match preview and predicted line-ups: Rangers v Queen of the South.

Rangers Gates

Rangers face Queen of the South in the play-off quarter final second leg, with a draw enough to take the Light Blues through.

To be played on Sunday 17th May at 15:30. Venue: Ibrox, Glasgow.

Odds: Rangers 4/9, Draw 3/1, Queen of the South 11/2

Rangers are in control going into this play-off quarter-final after coming away from Palmerston Park 2-1 winners.

The Light Blues twice took the lead through goals from Steven Smith and Dean Shiels, with Derek Lyle leveling the score at 1-1 for a brief 11 minutes.

This is one of the most important Rangers games in recent times, with a place in the Scottish Premiership at stake, and the first goal in this game could be the most important given the Gers' tendency to struggle against Queen of the South.

Despite their patchy record against QoS, Rangers haven’t lost at home since 13th February when Hibernian defeated them 2-0 at Ibrox. Since then they have drawn four and won three, showing the Light Blues are prone to being held at home.

Only losing by a two-goal deficit would be enough for QoS to win the tie outright, whilst extra-time is only possible if the Doonhammers win the game, although the result needed will vary on how many Rangers score.

The last time QoS won a game at Ibrox was in January 1948, meaning they have had 23 matches without a win in Glasgow, and a victory will be enough for James Fowler’s side to progress.

Rangers could be without defensive pair Biel Mohsni and Lee McCulloch for the match, both missed the first-leg after picking up injuries in training, with McCulloch described as 50/50 to feature.

The impact of the missing pair could mean Stuart McCall starts with the same 3-5-2 formation as he did in the first-leg, which ultimately proved successful.

James Fowler has the option to pick the same side he fielded on Saturday, with no reported injuries to concern him, but he may opt for slight changes in order to put more pressure on the sometimes nervous looking Rangers defense.

Predicted Rangers line-up

Bell, McGregor, Zaliukas, Wallace, Smith, Foster, Law, Murdoch, Vuckic, Shiels, Miller

Queen of the South predicted line-up

Clark, Dowie, Durnan, Higgins, Holt, Kidd, Millar, McShane, Reilly, Carmichael, Lyle
