Queens left Dumfries this afternoon heading for Dingwall in a desperate search for points against high flying Ross County on Saturday. Queens will be without Lyle and Carr for the visit but include a Nigerian sriker who may play as a trialist. Queens manager Scott has been impressed by striker who has been training with the squad recently along with a Ukranian mid-fielder.
Scott hopes to fix up the Nigerian on a contract but his wages demands may preclude any agreement. Queens are in desperate trouble and appear isolated at the bottom of the league but as things can change dramatically in football and for the sake of the long-suffering fans the sooner than later. To be honest it would be an almighty shock if Queens take anything from the Dingwall side but we live in hope. The usual die-hards from the Travel Club will be up at the crack of dawn to make the long journey North and will be looking forward to meeting old friends in the Mallard Bar prior to kick-off. They are decent people up in Dingwall and the Queens fans are always made welcome. I hope the Queens fans come home happy.
