Queens entertain near rivals Ayr Utd at Palmerston on Saturday in a game that might, with the right result, see them move off the bottom of the table.

Queens will be hoping that it will be 3rd time lucky against Ayr this season, with the ‘Honest Men’ having won both of this seasons games between the two teams so far, once in the challenge cup, and once in the league, with Queens failing to score on both occasions. 

Whilst it’s not all doom and gloom at Palmerston, there is obviously much room for improvement, as it’s now 4 games without a win for Queens, and over 320 minutes since they last scored at home, something which will hopefully be put right on Saturday. The incentive to do well at the weekend was probably increased by Ayr’s midweek goalless draw with Partick, as any Queens victory will see them climb above their visitors, and with Raith playing away at runaway leaders Ross County, Queens have the chance to move themselves up the table.

Ayr’s recent form sees them having 2 wins from their last 6 league games, both away from Somerset, 3-2 at Hamilton, and 1-0 at Raith, having said that, they have conceded the most goals in the division on their travels, 15 to date, so Queens will be hoping to capitalise on that statistic. Their last 5 visits to Palmerston have produced just 1 goal, and with Queens struggling to find the net at home, the chances of a high scoring encounter look slim, so taking all this into consideration, I think Queens may just have enough to get all three points, maybe by the odd goal in 3. Pb’s prediction: Queens  2-1  Ayr Utd



  1. Wee Danny to score 1st against Ayr please.
