Queens Mad View

Kenny Brannigan writes on the Official Site ... "Injuries and suspensions are now hitting us hard but we're still soldiering on. Bobby Harris and Stephen McKenna are both suspended and four of the boys, Jamie Adams, big 'Homer', David Hutton and 'Burnsey, who picked up injuries against Ross County on Tuesday night, are all struggling. So 'Kerso' will be kept very busy!"

Airdrie United will be fighting for their lives and with Queens possibly fielding an understrength team things could be tough for the Doonhamers. I predict this one may be close and perhaps a high scoring draw looks on the cards.

Meanwhile tremendous news from Palmy with Craig Reid signing a two year extension to his contact. That is 11 players signed up for next season so things are looking good.
