Queens crashed to a 3-1 home defeat in their first home league game of the season, as Raith Rovers produced an excellent second-half performance to record a comfortable win.

After a very even and entertaining first half in which both teams created very good chances, it was Queens who went in at the break ahead, after Kevin Smith converted a rather softly given penalty. However, the second period belonged almost entirely to Raith, and in John Baird and Allan Walker, they had the best two players on the park. It was Baird who equalised from close in, and then put the visitors in front, lobbing MacKenzie from just outside the box after dreadful defending from McGuffie. The points were sealed by Graham with the help of yet more woeful defending, this time from Campbell. Queens then lost Kevin Smith, sent -off for absolutely nothing, and the Raith player in question(no2) should hang his head in shame after his ludicrous dive to the ground. Raith were the better team, and passed the ball really well and with more conviction and accuracy than Queens, and they were definately worthy winners. The referee was complete ‘tosh’ some of his decisions were dreadful, although thankfully none of them affected the result, although Smith’s sending off will impact on Queens’ next game.
