AYR FRUSTRATE QUEENS AT SOMERSET
Half-Time - Ayr United 0 Queen of the South 1
Much to Ayr's delight a stiff breeze in their favour greeted the teams for the start of the second half. The home side exploited the wind to their advantage and bomborded the Queens defence with high crosses and inswinging corners which had Dodds in all sorts of trouble. The young keeper however kept his cool and had several wonderful saves keeping Ayr at bay. Queens were also very dangerous on the break and had several chances to kill Ayr off but somehow O'Connor,Wood and Co. just could not find the net. Paton was making several openings but the Queens forwards seemed to be trying to walk the ball into the net and were unwilling to trust their shooting. It was curious to note that Roy in the Ayr goal hardly had a shot to handle as most of the Queens efforts were off target. As the game reached the last 10 minutes it looked as if Queens would hold out for a narrow win when Ferguson tried a speculative lob which fell behind the unlucky Dodds. Queens were shocked and tore into Ayr in the last 10 minutes and almost snatched victory when Burns blasted just over. The referee brought things to a close when he blew 3 minutes EARLY for the final whistle. I think Queens did enough to earn a victory and the players will not be happy at missing so many chances which on another day perhaps they would have put away. Anyway we have not lost much ground and we are nicely tucked into third place. We have a rest from the league next week when we head for Methil on Cup business. So here's hoping for a good day out and hopefully a few goals. A word of comfort for the Drummer Boy who was refused entry with his Drums by the police. What a lot of spoilsport twats they are !
