Quote from Queen's manager Scott " I felt it was two points dropped"
Half-Time Hamilton 0 Queens 1
Hamilton came out fighting in the second half but the Queens defence with Thomson and Barnard outstanding were giving nothing away. There were some ugly incidents as Hamilton became more frustrated and Ferguson and Lyle were very lucky to escape with only a yellow card each. Hamilton were certainly coming more into it as Queens were quite content to sit back and soak up the pressure. This tactic very nearly paid off until the 80 minute when Keogh had a great header saved by Barnard. The ball was drifting safely wide when Thomson seemed to stumble and collide with Corcoran who went down like a ton bricks. The referee who was in a good position immediately pointed to the spot and Cramb blasted the resultant penalty past Barnard. From where I was sitting it looked as if Thomson made minimum contact with Corcoran but the referee saw it from a different angle. Queens had to hang on grimly for the final few minutes and there was a sigh of relief as McPhee sent a header well over the top. Most Queens fans will be pleased with a point but it could easily have been three. Once again Barnard had a magnficent game between the posts and gave tremendous support to his defence. Mc Niven showed his natural scoring ability and skipper Bowey lead by example with McColligan also having a good match. The match on 2nd April is a chance to put some more daylight between us and our Maryhill rivals and Queens should be in a confident mood although Jim Thomson will be missing through suspension. A final note about our magnificent support at Hamilton. They were trully magnificent and the Hamilton support must know the words of the Railway song of by heart now !
