FootyMad's prediction ...

FootyMad see this game edging towards a narrow win for the Blue Brazil, as the The Doonhamers have been none too clever on the road in recent matches. Home win

Cowdenbeath Failed to win in previous 4 home matches.
Not drawn a match in their last 6 .
Queen o.t.S. Not won in previous 4 away matches.
No win in the 3 most recent games.

Queens Mad Prediction ...

Queens will be anxious to break their Division 1 duck and get some points on the board but it will not be easy against awkward opponents on their own patch. On paper Queens should win this one but this is a potential banana skin fixture fraught with danger. The Doonhamers will be without the suspended Reid but have McLaren,Lilley,Johnston and Hutton back in action.

Queens should have too much class for the Fife side and I'm going for a narrow win.
