Queens were dealt yet another blow to their 1st division survival chances on Saturday, as a late equaliser from Dundee’s Matt Lockwood saw them take just a single point from a game that they were desperate to win.

Just before the interval, Queens went ahead after Sam Parkin pounced to turn a cross from Nicky Clark past Dundee’keeper Douglas, and after creating enough chances to win the game in the 2nd half,they paid the price for some slack defending at the end as the visitors grabbed a share of the points. The good news is that the result stretched Queens unbeaten league run to 5 games, and coupled with the fact that Raith lost, Queens have now moved up to 8th place in the division- although Raith, and more significantly Ayr both have games in hand-the not so good news is that Queens next 2 games are away at Falkirk, and Ross County, currently the top two teams in the division, so points gained are likely to be very hard to come by. Danny Carmichael received the man-of-the-match award from the sponsors, although for me it would have been John Potter, who in making his home debut, showed just what a significant signing he could prove to be, with a sound, reliable defensive performance.

With just a third of the season left to play, Queens must start to turn draws into wins as soon as possible, as although they are on a pretty decent run of 5 league games unbeaten, they have still only won 2 of their last 14 league games, taking 12 points  from 42 available, hopefully on Saturday  Queens can begin to start to change those statistics by collecting 3 points at Falkirk.



  1. Sam Parkin to score first at Falkirk please.
