McNiven-Last week's
match winner
Queens will be going all out for a win against Hamilton Accies tomorrow which will virtually preserve their First Division status. Accies however will have other ideas as they fight for their own survival. Queens will be at full strength although McColligan picked up an injury during training in midweek and is considered doubtful. I fully expect Queens to give a good account of themselves with Lyle and McNiven leading the way and with a 600 plus travelling support it should be an exciting encounter on the much maligned plastic surface. I will be very surprised if Queens don't come away with at least a draw.
