Queens Mad Prediction

Queens manager Kenny Brannigan will be glad to get a game under his belt and reports are that he will have McMillan back in the fold whom he favours as a midfielder so there may be a shuffling around of the team. I also have a sneaky suspicion he will abandon the Homes and O'Connor partnership. We will have to pick up three points at a difficult venue but we have a good record at Cappielow so a narrow win is not out of the question.
