Partick Thistle are the opponents for Queens at Palmerston this weekend, in a game that once again will see the home side starting the match as the bottom side in the Scottish 1st Division. Having lost 7 of their 12 league games so far, Queens will be desperate to collect all three points from the game, and if they do win the clash, they will move to within one point of Thistle. The visitors have only once away from home in the league this season, and that was at Dundee in their last away game, that win being their only victory in their last 4 games, a similar record to Queens.

Two former Queens men are expected to be included in Jackie McNamara’s squad for the game, Scott Robertson, and goalkeeper Scott Fox who will replace Ryan Scully who was injured in training during the week. Queens’ boss Gus MacPherson may give a first home start to Marc McCusker, and Danny Carmichael may also return to the squad.

With Queens failing to score at Palmerston in their last two and a half games, the home fans will be hoping that Saturday will see that run come to an end. Partick don’t have a great winning record at Palmerston, their last win being a 2-1 victory in December 2007, and there should be goals in the game. Since Queens returned to the 1st division there have been no goalless league encounters between the sides at Palmerston, the last game that ended scoreless between the teams at Palmerston was way back in December 1998. 

Defender Mark Campbell scored his only Queens goal so far in the first game between the teams at Firhill back in August, and he is my pick to be first scorer for Queens in the 1st scorer competition, as Queens go for their 3rd league win of the season.
