David Mc Niven
Struggling Queens head off to Broadwood tomorrow hoping to shake of the relegation blues by pinching some points of Clyde who have not entirely given up hope of catching legaue leaders Falkirk. Queens have struggled against Clyde in recent matches but have not enjoyed the best of luck but hopefully this will change on Saturday. Clyde are a tough organsied unit and Queens will have to scrap for everything but Brian McColligan's return should bolster the midfield. I would expect Queens manager Scott to have McNiven and Lyle up front or he may gamble with Wood and returning Paton to his usual right-back slot. To be realistic I can't see Queens salvaging anything from this game but with a large travelling support cheering them on anything can happen. Brain McLaughlan can't make it as he has
flu but apart from that Scott has a
full squad to pick from.
