It' your last chance to stand at the Portland Road end( Or as some of our more senior supporters call the Glesga Street En ) at Palmy on Saturday as Queens line up for their final home match of the season against St Johnstone. The departure of John Connolly as the Saints manager has taken away some of the spice to the fixture but Queens will be hopeful of success so they can finish well up the league. Eric Paton looks as if he will sit this one out but otherwise Queens will be at full strength. It's the Doonhamers Travel Club end of season dance at the Lochside Labour Club on Saturday evening where the players awards will be presented. A large turnout of Queens players and Officials is expected and I hope to have some pictures of the glittering event on Sunday sometime.
Queen o.t.S. prepare to entertain St. Johnstone at Palmerston Park on Saturday afternoon, needing to improve on a poor record between the sides. The visitors have won 10 of the 25 previous games, with the The Doonhamers winning just 4.
The most recent encounter between these two sides at Palmerston Park was earlier this season, with St. Johnstone inflicting a narrow 0-1 defeat upon the The Doonhamers in a Scottish Division One match.
