Queen o.t.S. prepare to entertain Partick Thistle at Palmerston Park on Saturday afternoon, needing to improve on a poor record between the sides. The visitors have won 21 of the 52 previous games, with the The Doonhamers winning just 19.
The most recent encounter between these two sides at Palmerston Park was less than a year ago, in March 2010, the The Doonhamers carving out a narrow 1-0 victory in a Scottish Division One match.

Queens Mad Prediction
Thistle have been strggling of late and are firmly anchored to the bottom of the league but there is still quality in the side and their manager McCall will be eager to put one over on his former club.
Queens will have to be careful with this one however another three points is expected with perhaps a few goals to spare.
Bob Harris will miss this match through suspension and both Quinn and Johnstone will be given late fitness tests. The good news however is that skipper David Lilley is fit.
