Queens moved off the bottom of the table at the weekend after beating near neighbours Ayr  4-1 at Palmerston, and although the scoreline would suggest a comfortable victory for Queens, it was anything but for the first 70 minutes. The score, and the game were level with just 20 minutes to go when Queens were awarded a clear penalty and at the same time the visitors were reduced to 10 men. Scott McLaughlin scored for the 2nd game running with a calmly taken penalty, and a goal sixty seconds later from Danny Carmichael gave Queens the advantage, and with the extra man in their favour, Queens sealed the victory when Stephen Simmons hit goal number 4 in the last minute of the game.

Queens had gone in front after half an hour when Stephen McKenna scored another cracker from 30-yards, but his effort was cancelled out right on the stroke of half-time when Wardlaw equalised for the visitors from close range, despite an initial good save from Lee Robinson.

The win, Queens fourth league victory of the season coupled with Raith’s defeat in Dingwall means that they have moved up 2 places to eighth in the table, level on points with Ayr, and one point ahead of now bottom placed Raith. Next week Queens will make their first visit to Dens Park this season to take on the vastly improving Dundee as they aim to build on Saturday’s confidence boosting victory.
