Bill Goldie reports on the Queen's Official Website
1-0 victory at Airdrie last night saw Queen move one rung up the ladder. But Kenny Brannigan was far from impressed by the match itself and said, "That was the worst game of football in the world but Willie McLaren's goal was a good one. I was actually thinking of taking him off, but I'm glad I didn't.
"Our boys looked tired and jaded with two games in three days! However, I'd like to thank our 195 faithful fans in the crowd of 825 for 'sticking it out'.
"That's up back into fourth place in the table and we're still in with a chance of catching Dunfermline. Third place would do me fine!
"Our next three games are at Palmerston so I'm looking to at least better that 54 point mark. I'm told that's the most Queens have managed since moving up to the First Division in 2002, but we'll take it one game at a time. Our squad is not big and we can't afford to make too many changes.
"We've got Raith Rovers on Saturday and they're the only side we haven't beaten in the league this season.So we owe them one!
"They'll just be recovering from the semi-final of the Scottish Cup, so I don't know whether it's a good time or a bad time to meet them.
"We had David Lilley and Jordan McMillan back against Airdrie but I don't think we've any other injuries now apart from Craig Reid and Jamie Adams.
"Stephen McKenna is now suspended for three games and Bobby Harris is awaiting a ban for his 'red card' against Caley Thistle.
"So, we'll just have to wait and see how it goes!.
