And manager Ally McCoist says they must deliver the right result for the extraordinary crowd that is set to descend upon the stadium.
There were barely 1000 tickets left this afternoon which is utterly incredible and Rangers are now on course to surpass the 49,118 attendance which was recorded for the East Stirlingshire game on August 18.
Boss Ally McCoist said: “The players are amazed and pleased at the expected turn-out for the Queen’s Park game – I believe it’s close to a sell-out and that’s mind-blowing.
“So they know what is expected of them. The supporters deserve a performance from them and I’m very hopeful they will get that.
“Queen’s Park are going very well. We have watched them two or three times and they have had good results including a 4-0 win up at Elgin.
“They are one of the more mobile and aggressive teams in the league and by that I mean they have a bit of pace and energy about them.
“It’s a derby, although I have to say I didn’t see the day where we would be talking about a Rangers-Queen’s Park game in SFL 3 but that’s where we are and we are looking forward to it.
“They will want to win as much as we do and we are not treating in a different way from any other team.
“The players know the responsibilities they have. And the most important thing is the Queen’s Park game.”
