Queens Chase First Win Of League Campaign

Last updated : 17 August 2007 By Footymad Previewer

Jim Thomson
After the disappointment of their Challenge Cup at Clyde,Gordon Chisolm and his team head for New Douglas Park in search pf their first league win. Jim Thomson will be available but we beleive he will not be risked on the plastic pitch. Jim Laughlan is still suspended and Jamie Adams is still injured. Neil McGowan and Sean O'Connor remain 50-50 and will undergo late fitness tests.

The early season optimism generated by some good pre-season performances are evaporating rapidly and Gordon Chisolm will be under some pressure from the Queens fans who will be expecting at least a share of the points against an on form Hamilton side.

As usual the plastic pitch will be a factor and Queens will do well to hold the Accies and I'm hopeful of some success. Our luck must change some time.
