A Ryan McGuffie penalty 8 minutes from time secured a point for Queens as the sides shared 4 goals in a repeat scoreline of the August fixture between the teams. Queens made the brighter start, and went ahead when Tom Brighton netted his 4th league goal of the season-2 of them coming at Almondvale-but the hosts levelled, and then took the lead leaving Queens to rely on McGuffie’s penalty to get them a share of the points.

The result means that Queens are now on their best run of the season, as they are now unbeaten in 3 games, and although a point is better than none, it was quite clearly a case of 2 points dropped rather than one gained. However there was a cost to the point gained, with Craig Reid being sent off for receiving 2 yellow cards, and Stephen McKenna being cautioned yet again which means that both players will be missing for next week’s vital clash with Morton at Palmerston.

Whilst the recent 3 game unbeaten run is an upturn in form for Queens,they have still collected only win league win from 11 games played, and with Ayr having 2 games in hand at present-which will become 3 after this weekend-it is vital that Queens win against Morton, anything other than 3 points from this game will almost certainly leave Queens with too much to do with games running out fast.
