Queens manager Gordon Chisolm hopes to have Jamie Adams back in his pool for the trip to Cappielow to face Greenock Morton. The Queens boss will have the luxury of having a full squad to pick from apart from defender McGowan who is still doubtful.
The fixtures are coming thick and fast and come no tougher then Morton on their own patch. Former Queens favourite Peter Weatherson will be determined to put one over on his former club but the Greenock side have not exactly set the heather on fire of late and the Doonhamers can be confident of at least a point.
Several hundred Queens fans are expected to head for Greenock so it's shaping up to be a unique atmosphere.
Queen o.t.S. travel to take on Greenock Morton at Cappielow Park on Saturday afternoon, hoping to improve upon an average previous return from this fixture. Of the 26 games played, The Doonhamers have recorded 7 wins, and Morton have come away with 10 victories.
The last time the two teams met at Morton was back in April 2002, over five years ago, as the visitors ran out cosy 0 - 3 winners in a Scottish Division Two match.
