Queens MAD prediction

Queens have no injury worries for this match which will be screened live on BBC ALBA but McKenna will be suspended. Queens are the form team at the moment but will be tested by a County team riding on the crest of a wave having earned a place in the Scottish Cup Final after their magnificent win against Celtic in the semis.

I'm however backing Queens to put on a show in front of the TV cameras and we are hoping for a resounding win for the Doonhamers.
