starting line up ?
Queens are hopeful of victory against Dundee tomorrow and further cut the points defecit in relation to rivals Stranraer who managed to scramble a surprise draw with Ross County at Dingwall on Saturday. It's getting very tight now and we are slowly running out of games so we must somehow get maximum points from this young Dundee team who had a hard Scottish Cup-tie on Saturday against Hamilton. No team news from Palmy as yet but I have a feeling McCall may have Mullen on from the start. A healthy crowd is expected to give the team plenty of backing so there should be no excuses. I take Queens to come out on top but it may be close.
