Queens Bury The Bully Wee

Last updated : 06 January 2008 By Queens MAD

Queens produced one of their best performances of the season to record an impressive victory over Clyde after a tremendous second half fight back.

The Doonhamers dominated from the start but a defiant display by Hutton in the Clyde goal prevented kept the home side out. Burns had a great effort diverted over the bar as Queens looked for an opening goal.

It was however at the other end that the opening goal came from McGowan after Thomson had given a penalty away impeding Arbuckle. The Home crowd were somewhat bemused by this turn of events and feared the worst as the half-time whistle went. Queens had been the more impressive team but Clyde had battled hard and got the vital goal.

The second half started with Clyde sitting deep and Queens desperately looking for an equaliser. Dobbie was brought on for the tiring Scott and had an immediate affect on the game as he controlled a cross from Tosh in brilliant fashion and then smash an equaliser past Hutton on 62 minutes. The Home faithful were now in full voice sniffing victory and as the pressure mounted on the Clyde goal, Burns was first to react from a Tosh free-kick to slot the ball home on 73 minutes in front of a delirious Portland Road end.

With the Palmy crowd in full voice Queens took complete control as Clyde tried hard to get back into the game and Tosh put the icing on the cake when he stroked home a third goal from the penalty spot after the marvelous Burns had been felled in the box on 89 minutes.

This was arguably Queens best performance of the season and if they can somehow pick up more points away from home we will gradually pull clear of the dreaded play-off zone.
