Queens Aim To Shock The Accies

Last updated : 01 January 2008 By Queens MAD

Gordon Chisolm
Queens after victories against Dundee and Livingston are hopeful of success against a Hamilton side who have taken SFL 1 by storm this year.

It will however be a massive task by Chisolm's inconsistent Queens who continue to be plagued by injury and other problems. Striker O'connor will be a doubtful starter due to his dislike of the plastic surface but new signing Ryan McCann goes straiight into the squad.

Chisolm has had the full squad in for training today so the team will be well prepared although perhaps Accies will have too much strike power for the Doonhamers. As usual there will be no lack of support for Queens including three Travel Club buses making the short journey up the M74.
