The points were shared at Cappielow at the weekend as Queens could not manage to hold on for a much needed victory, as yet another late goal cost them dearly.After taking the lead after just 66 seconds, and regaining the lead early in the 2nd period through a  ‘wonder’ strike from Stephen McKenna, Queens once more succumbed to a late sucker punch as Morton substitute, Peter Weatherson scored for the 10th time against his former side.

Youngster Stephen Black made his first start of the season, and had a decent game, and was involved in Queens opening goal winning the ball on halfway before releasing Danny Carmichael whose cross eventually fell to Scott McLaughlin who thumped the ball home from 10-yards. Lee Robinson made a couple of important stops to keep Queens in the game, although he was powerless to prevent the home side equalising on 17 minutes, Andy Jackson reacted quickest of all and tapped the ball in after a Smyth header came back off the bar.

The goal that regained the lead for Queens was an absolute cracker, as Stephen McKenna celebrated his birthday 24 hours earlier, with a rocket from fully 30-yards. However with just 7 minutes left, Queens were denied their 2nd away victory of the season when former favourite Peter Weatherson scored from close range.

With the news that Raith had beaten Hamilton filtering through, what looked like a good point away from home was quickly put into perspective with Queens now 2 points adrift at the foot of the table. If ever there was an important game for Queens, then it must be Saturday’s home game with Ayr, as even at this relatively early stage of the season, it surely is a must win game.
