Queens recorded their first away win of the season at Kirkcaldy on Saturday, as 2 goals, one in each half, saw Queens continue their good recent record at Starks Park against an out of sorts Raith side. Scott McLaughlin set Queens on the way to victory after 18 minutes, and the points were sealed by sub Tom Brighton’s tap in 14 minutes from time.

Queens certainly deserved the win, although the home side did have chances and the always dangerous John Baird was denied by a top drawer save by Queens ‘keeper Lee Robinson, who along with his defence, kept Raith at bay to earn a first clean sheet on the road.

The win lifts Queens a place further up the table and will give the players a much needed boost ahead of their next game, at home to the division’s draw specialists, Livingston,this coming Saturday. Oddly enough, Saturday’s scorers McLaughlin and Brighton were the two players who scored on the only other occasion that Queens have taken a point away from home so far this season, and that was on the opening day in the 2-2 draw with Livingston.

Marc McCusker finally made his Queens debut coming on as a late replacement for Allan Johnston, he barely had time to walk onto the pitch before the referee brought the game to a close, as Queens collected 3 points and ended a run of 430 minutes without a goal.
