Half-Time - Falkirk 1 Queens 0
Queens really came out fighting in the second-half as manager Scott decided to have a real go at Falkirk. Queens began to dominate and the Falkirk defence were not too happy and resorted to some dubious tactics to stop the now rampant Doonhamers. The noisy away support sensed something and started a continuous rant of the famous Wheelbarrow song which they kept up for most of the second half. As Queens swept forward the home defence started to give away free-kicks in dangerous positions and from one of those kicks Payne almost scored. Gibson was now on and started to run at the overworked Bairns defence and the young winger was getting some really rough treatment. Another free-kick from Payne brought off a wonderful save from the Falkirk keeper Ferguson amidst absolute bedlam in the away stand. The pressure was mounting on the home defence and it was no surprise when Kernaghan turned the ball into his own net on 79th after another free-kick. The delirious Queens support were now in full voice and they went absolute bananas when McNiven swept the ball into the net three minutes from the end to gain a memorable victory. This was a remarkable performance from a Queens team without three of it's regulars and everyone was a hero and none more so then Queens player of the season Jim Thomson who completely stifled the Falkirk dangerman McBreen. Payne also had another magnificent game with his free-kicks a highlight. The midfield again was solid with Lovell playing a wonderful holding role which allowed even Thomson to forage up field. Carr filled in well at the back and he will be an asset to Queens in the future. All the Queens fans were a credit to the club as they turned up in their hundreds in fancy dress. There was no trouble whatsoever and most stayed behind at the end to applaud the Bairns receiving their Championship trophy. It was also very touching to see the Falkirk fans applauding the Queens fans as they left the stadium. Many Queens fans were also seen shaking hands with Falkirk fans in and around the stadium after the final whistle. This is what football is all about away from all the bigotry which blights other areas of Scottish Football. Queens manager Scott and his staff can reflect on a successful season and they should be congratulated. We can look forward to next season and who knows we may even lift the Division 1 title.
