FootyMad's prediction ...

The Doonhamers are in quite good form at home, but the FootyMad team thinks on this occasion, Inverness CT will prove too strong and win this game comfortably. Away win

Queen o.t.S. Won 3 successive home games.
5 games since last home draw.

Queens Mad View

This will be a tough one for Queens against the form team. Queens will be without Lilley and McMillan who are both suspended. They will also be without the injured Hutton and there is even talk of Adams and Harris being doubtful.

Even at full strength Queens would have been hard pushed to hold a rampant Inverness and a draw is probably the best we can hope for.
