Queens gained another point in their quest to stay in the Division in a poor match at Firhill against a dogged Thistle side who quite frankly were there for the taking. Queens had a great chance in the opening minutes when Paton charged forward but his cross was put wide by Murray. Roberstson also went near for Thistle but it was pretty uninspiring stuff all round.

Dobbie had cruel luck when his shot looked to be heading for the top corner but somehow it just dropped behind when everyone was shouting for goal. There was however some heartening news at Half-Time when scores elsewhere were very much in Queens favour so there was everything to play for in the second-half. The second period wasn't much better than the first as each side pressed for a winner. Thistle's Gibson went near but O'Neill for Queens had the best chance of the game when his effort was brilliantly turned on to the crossbar bay the home keeper.

O'Connor had a chance in the closing minutes but a draw was perhaps the fair result. It wasn't pretty but at least we got a point and a win over Livingston next week will could keep us in the Division but it sure is going to be close.
