Queens sent SPL side Hibs crashing out of this season’s Scottish Communities League Cup as they produced a fine display of attacking football to progress to the 3rd round.

First half goals from Nicky Clark, his 5th of the season, and Gavin Reilly had Queens well in control after a superb first 45 minutes, and although Hibs created a few half chances after the break, it wasn’t until stoppage time that Lee Robinson was called upon to make a save of note, by which time a good proportion of the away support were already making their way out of the ground.

The pacey attack of Queens caused problems all night long for the SPL side, as Carmichael, Orsi, Clark and Reilly ran their socks off for the cause, with Carmichael in particular having probably his best game for Queens. This was certainly one of the best performances from a Queens side for a long time, so much so that almost the entire Queens support joined in with a chorus of ‘When the South go marching in’ such was their teams splendid performance.

This was certainly one of those memorable ‘Palmerston occasions’ as Queens recorded a league cup victory against a team from the Premier league for the first time since a win at Dunfermline way back in 1990.
