Queens pulled off probably their best win of the season by defeating table-toppers Raith Rovers 1-0 at Kirkcaldy yesterday. It was Ryan Conroy who grabbed the all-important counter late in the game and the three points now takes us to the 17 point mark in the table. The top three all lost but it was a good day for bottom sides, Morton and Ross County, who both pulled off shock wins to tighten up the table.
Speaking on the Official Website Kenny Brannigan heaped praise on his troops and stressed, "That was absolutely brilliant! A massive result and it was tremendous to come up here and get it. It probably wasn`t one of the best games to watch but we defended really well and were `dogged`, just like they`ve been all season.
"We worked hard out there and once again the `assist` came from big `Homer` who laid it on inch-perfect for Ryan Conroy. It was only Ryan`s second strike for us! A left-footer from just inside the box, low a hard. We`re still up there fighting but it will be great to get back to Palmerston again next week."
It was just Raith Rover`s second league defeat of the season. The Starks Park men have only conceded five league goals to date which makes victory that bit sweeter.
Added goal-getter Ryan Conroy. "It was a great touch from `Homer` to set me up. I hardy had to break my stride but had to be sharp to knock it past the keeper. A tremendous three points and it keeps us right up there where we want to be."
