Struggling Queens will probably line-up against Airdrie United on Saturday with Ukranian trialist Dimitri Pronovych being given a vital midfield role as manager Scott hopes for his first win of the season. Injuries to Carr,Lyle, Lovell and Reid along with the suspension of Bowey and Wood may also open the door for some of our younger players namely Scott Roberston. Scott has confirmed it will be a young Queens team that takes the field against Airdrie and one wonders if an inexperienced eleven can handle such a vital fixture. These are indeed worrying times for the Queens faithful and if we fail to pick up the points on Saturday we will become further isolated at the foot of the table. It will be another tense afternoon for the fans but I remain optomistic and with home advantage, we may come up trumps and gain our first win of the season.
