Queens Mad Prediction...

Queens should have too much for Stirling and a comfortable victory is predicted but as usual it will be no cakewalk as Stirling's boss is formar Palmy legend John O'Neill and he will be keen to do well against his old club.

Some Queens players are carrying a few knocks after their midweek cup defeat at Perth but manager Brannigan expects to field a strong squad.
