Queens Mad Prediction.

Queens fresh from their success at Peterhead should be too strong for a struggling Greenock side however former Queens players Weatherson and Keane will be hoping to shoot down the Doonhamers.

From Kenny Brannigan speaking on the Official Site

"We don`t have a big squad ourselves but we`re a tight unit and play for each other. We`ve exceeded all expectations and have shown a good attitude to be right up there with the pack. We`re playing good attacking football and dealing with it in defence."

Queens Mad is therefore predicting a narrow away win for the Queens but it will be hard going as usual at Cappielow.

McKenna returns for Queens after suspension but Burns misses out having been red-carded in a recent SFL match.
