FalkirkNot drawn a match in their last 5 .
Queen o.t.S.Won each of the previous 4 matches.
Last drawn game 6 outings ago.

Queens MAD prediction - The Bairns will be eager to kick-start their season so this will be another tough one for Queens who have been scoring freely recently albeit against lower league opposition. I think we may however have to settle for a share of the points.

Queen's manager has a strong squad to pick from with Quinn back from injury.
