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.
Queen o.t.S. face a trip to Hamilton Academical at New Douglas Park on Saturday afternoon, hoping to improve upon an average previous return from this fixture. Of the 45 games played, The Doonhamers have recorded 14 wins, and Hamilton Ac. have come away with 17 victories.
The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in February 2007, where the two teams cancelled each other out in an enthralling 2 - 2 draw in a Scottish Division One match.
